As chaos and uncertainty continue, leaders need to create and sustain safe spaces where everyone is welcome. Acting with compassion, inclusion and unity is critical now more than ever.
The end of the year is loaded. Pumpkins, turkeys, glittering lights and champagne toasts bum-rush us in a matter of weeks. Sweet treats, extended family, merrymaking and calls for gratitude both fill us up and overwhelm us.
