“It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength."—Maya Angelou
Are you as tired of watching the news as I am? Then....we've got something completely different to approach on this episode of Laughbox!
On this episode, I get to talk to my good friend, Lisa Koenecke...."The Inclusion Ally!" Within our association, we do a really good job of bringing everyone into the fold but, as you know, we are a bit different as a group. Most organizations are still playing by the playbook they were given in the 80's and Lisa's mission is to change that with humor and education.
I had a great time talking with Lisa and I know you'll like her too!
