Why I Choose To Speak Up

A few reflections on being vocal in the workplace.

I’ve been asked a lot why I feel the need to be so candid and vocal about diversity and inclusion, social justice, and other related topics.

In the pursuit of authenticity, I wanted to share why I’ve chosen to use my voice in this way.

FIRST: My identity as a human and a citizen is more important than my role as an employee or worker.

SECOND: What happens in the workplace can never be fully separated from what happens in the “real world.”

THIRD: I truly believe we have an opportunity to build a better society and culture.

FOURTH: Many people feel like I do…

FIFTH: I know my worth and I am unafraid of challenges.
