Reflections on MLK & Work

I'm grateful for another King holiday. Every year on this day I reflect on the fact that the work of Dr. King has afforded me the right to work in a broader number of roles and situations in the society that my father and grandfather could only have dreamed about.

I'm asked why I don't take this day all, and often I reply that I'm happy to work on this day because it is Dr. King's work that is the main reason why I work where I do. As we celebrate this day, let's take time to reflect on the work of Dr. King and the fact that his dream is a bit more realized when we work in diverse organizations with peoples from cultures that a few generations ago would not have been allowed.

Happy King's Day to you!
