My name is David Terne.
8 min 46 sec. My patience vanished.
I have been trying to advance Diversity and Inclusion in the corporate world as an ally for well over a decade. I have chaired Diversity and Inclusion committees. I have written Diversity and Inclusion strategies. I have been an ERG executive sponsor and a member of ERGs. I have been a mentor and been mentored.
I have been trying to move the proverbial mountain for a while. The entire time everyone said to be patient - "it will take time". Then I saw the George Floyd video and my patience vanished. After seeing that video I knew I had to somehow do more. Hence I am starting this blog. I have met so many people who want to be an ally but don't know how to start. I hope this will get people off the fence. I hope it will create more allies and accelerate the change that is necessary in our corporate world.
