The ?! moment I’ve felt the most Love:
I was working with the Diversity and Inclusion team for a major pharmaceutical company, and we ran a privilege exercise to reveal the obstacles and benefits that each person had experienced in their lives. The exercise brought us closer together as we learned about the unique challenges and circumstances our teammates had faced!
