What is a piece of advice that you wish you could give your former self?

Know what your internal brand is and who your champions are. Does your internal brand reflect the professional you aspire to be? If not, what new brand, and possibly new network, do you need to develop to make the transition?

What fires you up re: diversity and inclusion? Why is this a passion?

I genuinely enjoy learning about people, and diversity and inclusion gives us the opportunity to learn, listen, and take actions to make our environments more inclusive, empowering and giving individuals access and visibility to opportunities they possibly would not have considered for themselves and/or others.
