Future for Us Founder and Leadership Incubator Fellow Sage Ke'alohilani Quiamno sat down with host Alyse Nelson to discuss her passion for equity and her fight to get more women of color in leadership within the modern workplace.

Sage shared how dealing with her own experiences of discrimination in the workplace motivated her to put her passion for equity into action. In this dynamic conversation, Sage makes it clear the importance of rooting advocacy and workplaces alike in an intersectional perspective, and the impact and power of bringing so many women across the world together.

From kickstarting Future for Us and catalyzing the conversation around justice for women of color in the workplace, Sage has always worked to be transparent and flexible in her leadership – two qualities that came in handy at the onset of COVID-19. Listen in to hear more about how Sage exemplifies what we all know: that women lead differently.
