Founder and CEO

The equality that I envision can only be achieved by standing up against all forms of oppression, exclusion, and discrimination, whether they are racial, sexist, gender identity issues, or disability issues, in the world, in our communities, or within ourselves. Only by standing up to all types of oppression, exclusion, and discrimination – whether they be racial, gender, gender identity or disability concerns – in our communities, board rooms, and within ourselves can we attain the true equality.
