I have always been a hard worker. While my co-workers took time off work to vacation, I saved my days off and my money, too.

As many organizations are turning their attention to equity, diversity, and inclusion activities, so often the starting (and sticking) point focuses on diversity. Why do companies get stuck here?

If there is one common theme from conversations I have held over the past year, it is that year 2020 was difficult, (to say the least). I understand that the concept [...]

I awoke to the soft buzzing of my alarm, gradually bringing me out of the fog of a very deep sleep. I slowly opened one eye to see the green glow of the alarm clock. 5:54 AM! Darn! My daily fitness class began at 6:00 AM, no way I was going to make it. My [...]
