the buzz
from our partners
“Thank you, Richard, for facilitating the [DEI in the Workplace] conversation. I have spent my whole career perfecting masking my identity in order to be what everyone expected. It’s overwhelming at times, to see that maybe that might not always have to be the case and that others coming up may feel accepted without masking themselves is truly wonderful.”
