When the news of George Floyd’s death broke, I was trying to stay positive and hopeful for the future. That’s who I am.

I was called out on it. And rightly so.

I wasn’t thinking very deeply about it. I was taking it lightly.

Nikki Ivey, Co-Founder at SDRDefenders, was the one to call me out and through that, we had a call. And I’m so grateful for that conversation.

It led me to ask the question I really should be asking more: What should I do?

Nikki said I should use my platform to reach out to those who are doing amazing things in their professional lives while fighting this fight every day — to share stories and practical recommendations for actually addressing these issues.

And Nikki was gracious enough to come on the show and do just that.
