People buy into the first principles, but they don’t always buy into the Pace

“The rate of change that I want to see, doesn’t always match the rate of change that others want to see. If you listen to the show you’ll notice that I present the inclusion challenges of the workplace as being urgent.”

People buy into the first principles, but they don’t always buy into the Perspective

“Here’s some data, here’s some research, here’s what’s wrong with the data and what’s wrong with the research, Here’s what I think,  here’s why I’m biased, here’s what I haven’t considered. Here’s my perspective”

People buy into the first principles, but they don’t always buy into the Practice

“If you say you want inclusion, how are you trying to make that happen? Practically.. what are you doing? “
