Thinking That Transforms
The world isn’t monotonous, and neither are humans. We’re vivid and diverse, vibrant and irreplaceable, varied and beautiful. And we are all so much more than what we produce for others, whether as a consumer or colleague. Amazing things happen when humans embrace who we are, the shared experiences that bond us and the differences that make us unique.
On March 8, companies around the world recognized International Women’s Day (IWD). At Zeno, we assembled a virtual panel of accomplished women to cast a much-needed spotlight on the biases that still exist. While hopeful for the future, our four panelists minced no words describing their unique, multi-dimensional lived reality and the work still to be done. We thank them for their vulnerability and voice so real change can be made. While IWD is but one day, this is a conversation that needs to be part of our everyday in order to #BreakTheBias.
Black History Month has always been a time when I reflect on some of the many amazing contributions that Black people have given to this country and beyond. And as someone who has always been obsessed with music, I always think about the ways that Black music, especially hip hop, has permeated many aspects of our lives.
There was a lot of discussion among Zeno leaders about whether or not we could activate our annual global day of service, Zeno Gives Back, during this past fiscal year. This is a treasured tradition, one created three years ago at the request of Zenoids around the world who wanted to give their time and talents to their communities and do their part to help better humankind.
