If we want to ask deeper questions about the talent pipeline and opportunity, this is an important place to start.

And now, your week in review, in haiku



When your House is on

fire, you’ll remember the

ones who rescued you



Sometimes: God knocks on

your door so hard she cracks a

rib. Ruth’s lucky break



The sound of breaking

news drowns out all hope and sense:




On the other side

of The Wall, it will still be

Christmas. Holy night.



The shortest night does

lead to longer days: It all

gets brighter from here


Wishing you all a holiday season filled with love, renewal, and good vibes. RaceAhead is on hiatus until Wednesday, January 2, 2019.
