After spending many years fighting the good fight to create empowered, diverse teams delivering great products, I found myself burned out and frustrated by the changes that I fought so hard for. The changes were largely unappreciated by people outside of the team because their values just weren’t fully aligned. This led me to focus on cultivating relationships with communities that embrace similar values at their foundation, eliminating the need to fight for change and instead focusing on creating impact. These communities gave me the support, energy, and inspiration to start building my own business and community with Carefully, allowing me to further integrate my values into my work and my life. I look forward to sharing my ongoing journey with you.

You will walk away from this chat with:

  • An understanding of how to set yourself up for success while trying to build change within your community
  • Strategies to avoid burnout while working hard fighting for change
