It took gumption, it took a step in the direction of hope, of taking a chance on a group of people that you believed in and wishing they would have the conversation. I’m humbled, proud, inspired, and energized. What am I talking about? I’m talking about YOU, this industry, the attendees of our DEI Tough Conversation series. YOU showed up, YOU did the work, YOU carry the torch of this work back to your shops—and little flames are everywhere.
