June 2020. After the horrific and unjust death of George Floyd, I've returned to my website to add these few words:
I've had this image here on the front page for over a year, because I have always been so proud to know this person. Pictured below is John W. Thompson. He still is one of the few African American CEO's to lead a global technology behemoth: Symantec then, Chairman of Microsoft now.
For all of us who worked for him, he continues to be a shinning leadership beacon. It was a privilege and an honor to learn from him - John's humility and high standards set the bar and I strive toward them everyday. I have so much to learn, am committed to doing so & acknowledge that I will fall short along the way.
These past weeks have been a significant wake up call for self-examination. John taught us to be self aware and to always be making a difference by saying and doing.
Black Lives Matter. To make a difference, I must continue to educate myself, listen, be humble and most of all take action. It's time.
