Announcement: Launch of ‘How I Rise’ series

How I Rise series

I would like to share with you the launch of a new monthly storytelling series which I hope to involve you or someone you know. The How I Rise series asks rising young talented black leaders to share their personal stories of success, hustle and more in their work to break barriers and change the world.

The How I Rise series is a platform for black voices working to build an inclusive, sustainable and resilient future for people and planet. Have someone you want to see featured on the How I Rise series, or questions you think we should ask? Please email me and let me know if that’s you. 🙂

Again, I hope you all would consider taking part by nominating yourself or someone you think would make a great interview. Stay tuned for the first How I Rise story for January coming next week. Hit subscribe to get How I Rise sent directly to your inbox.
