(cool fact: one of the champions was the mind behind the Dove real-beauty campaigns)
The dinner is to honor those in high level corporate positions who champion for inclusiveness.
A memorable quotation regarding how we've progressed:
The standard went from "look like a lady, act like a man, and work like a dog" to "look however you want, act like yourself, and work like a dog". The last part is hard to get rid off.Or as Alex says, "hustle is universal"
But the main take away is how these people are using their influence to provide opportunities for others to advance. Things to think about:
- How to best be a mentor?
- Generate dialog amongst everyone, men and women, minorities, about inclusion.
- What impact do I want to have?
- Get these people as speakers for the WISE conference haha.
