“This month, I challenge you to consider what you need to do professionally and personally to follow your values and passion while taking into account your overall wellness.”
Ultimately, we must all think about what our purpose is and what we find most meaningful about the work we do. And we also need to explore why we are often willing to stay in places that may not align with who we are personally and professionally.

Let’s move past the feel-good moment where we are inspired by a message and empower each other to get out and do the work… Together, let’s demand a just world where each of us gets to be our whole, unapologetic selves in spaces where we were once denied.
