I first heard LeRon speak during a webinar hosted by my favorite HR network, StartupExperts, earlier this year. There were a few speakers, but he stood out with his frank, honest, and sometimes challenging observations about diversity in the workplace. I'm VP of People for a small SF-based company where two of our core values are being radically open-minded and obsessed with learning. Coupled with a truly supportive leadership team, we crave education and awareness around DEI. I had been planning to bring in a speaker focused on DEI, but didn't know where to start. LeRon and I talked a couple of times to see if he'd be interested in speaking with us and through our discussions, he made it so easy to frame our speaker event: an honest and raw look into the daily life of a Black man in America. LeRon is just a pleasure to talk to, but will also challenge traditional and outdated views. Given the employee feedback after the speaking event, I have no doubt that our talk enlightened my employees on so many fronts. And at Q&A, there were several variations of the question: how can I be a better ally? I absolutely loved working with LeRon and we'll definitely invite him back!
