BECA is a tremendous organization whose mission to share, learn, elevate, and pay it forward is much needed, as oftentimes 'leading while Black' means navigating solo. Elevating the next generation of leaders and helping others find firm footing is a worthy mission and it brings me joy to collaborate with other executives to bring BECA's vision to life.
