My Privilege

I am a cisgendered, heterosexual, white male-bodied homeowner with a graduate degree. During five years in a chief executive role, I grew in my understanding that the only way to dismantle racist structures is to give decision-making power over those structures to the people most harmed by them. The best way for me to support that work was to step aside and let others lead. Rather than look for the next leadership role, I want to find work where I can be in a supporting role, using what I have learned about cultivating organizational shifts to make other leaders successful.
