For this weeks’ #TBT (Throwback Thursday) I wanted to share this post I did on pay equality.

But as we continue to discuss these many unequal threads I’m […]
In another post, I talked about an attribute of visionaries: being truth tellers. They stand up for what’s right, regardless of the consequences, speaking the brutal truth when it needs to be said, and acting on that truth in their everyday lives.
