Being Fierce: The Six Challenges of Leadership
Mindfully Together: Creating a Culture of Inclusivity at Work (and Disrupting Ones that Aren't)
with founder of Center for Transformative Change, angel Kyodo williams
Monday, April 11, 2016, 7:00–9:00 p.m.
Far from depending on altruism, the only real path to a true culture of inclusivity
is committing to one’s own wholeness. Rev. angel looks at the conventional wisdom
of inclusivity then turns it on its head and returns the "disruption of disconnect"
to its rightful place as an act of bravery. Abandoning "being good" as motivation
and guilt as distraction, she points to uncovering our natural desire to be connected
as the source of living and leading from the the heart.
She notes, "Love and justice are not two. Without inner change, there can be no outer
change. Without collective change, no change matters." Her newest book collaboration,
Radical Dharma: Talking Race, Love, and Liberation will be released on Juneteenth of this year. Whether in writing, teaching, or speaking,
her voice is unique.

The answer, according to Tami, is an unequivocal "yes". She will talk about being the founder and CEO of a thirty-year old company that is both profit-driven and mission-driven; the importance of work as a way to contribute to the welfare of others; truth-telling and genuineness as critical leadership skills; committing to personal growth in organizational life; and valuing the many ways that love unexpectedly shows up in our relationships at work.
