Recommendation | The Bible

“The Bible ties the need for DE&I professionals to renew and refresh.

This work isn't for the weary. It can be lonely, exhausting and discouraging. The Bible keeps me grounded on servant leadership and the dualities of character that may seem to contradict but actually co-exist, depending on the situation.”

challenging dialogs.”
