UnCommon Women believes if we radically influencing both the number of women in leadership roles and shift the lense of leadership to be inclusive that it will bring about systemic intervention in organizations.  That making spaces for women to hear from and model each other work that there is a cascading effect for the organizations to be not just more inclusive to women but be more inclusive to all. That by educating advocates we can make a radical shift in organizations not just the culture of the organization but meaningfully impact the lives of those who are disadvantaged.

Interested in being a better advocate? allie? or the discussion on what reconciliation may look like in this climate
