I might be the first but I am definitely not going to be the last....
As we close out the week, these are words that I cannot/will not forget. What a week this has been for our country. Devoid of any politics, going forward no little girl or boy will ever know a world where a woman has not been the Vice President of the United States.
Representation matters, examples matter. This monumental event makes me reflect on importance of role models. You cannot be what you cannot imagine, and you cannot imagine what you cannot see. Hats off to all the women, women of color and other minority group leaders who came first. Who persevered, had a dream, and made unimaginable imaginable for so many of us.
No matter where we are in our professional development- we can always be that example of what “can be” to someone else. Hence as leaders in our organizations and our communities we have a big responsibility knowing that someone is watching, getting inspired by our words and actions. Another reason to lead with consciousness, kindness, and inclusivity!
