Q: 2022 Motto: DO BETTER!
A: Auxiliary verb DO and 'of a more excellent or effective type or quality' BETTER. We've listened, we've witnessed, sometimes on a continuous basis, and we've tried but, now, it's just time to do it. Do what? Do Better! Meaning let's not talk about it, let's be about it. Let's have a growth mindset and say that I will stand up for what is right and just, not tip-toe in. We don't want a part of it, we want the whole - ACCESS - ACCESS - ACCESS!!!
Q: 2021 Motto:What does 'Go Beige' mean?
A: Affirmative Action was good, however, not enough. We still see a racial divide within companies and yet, there is measurable proof that a diverse, equitable and inclusive workforce garners credibility to your product and services, your innovation, corporate responsibility and external and internal stakeholders. It impacts the tangible and intangible bottom line. "Go Beige" is our 2021 motto to say, let's hire black, indigenous and people of color to ensure a shift. Let's face it, we all see color, so let's shift the color spectrum slowly to 'Beige' in your organization until you start hiring human, celebrate diversity of thought, and embrace culture.
