“Bring Who You Are to the Table” and Other Advice from Civil Rights Leader Carmen Perez

As a teen, Carmen Perez was often chosen to be the captain of her basketball team. Still, the national co-chair of the 2017 Women’s March on Washington, D.C., didn’t start seeing herself as a leader until about 10 years into her career working for social justice.

“I always thought my coaches and teammates chose me because they saw that I was fair and not one to compromise my integrity,” says Perez, who wears several hats, including executive director of the Gathering for Justice, co-founder of Justice League NYC and founder of Justice League CA. “But now I also see that my natural tendency of seeing the good in people helps me bridge gaps and bring people together.” Read More

Strive for This Instead of Work-Life Balance

A self-professed “truth-bomber,” Anne Grady is all about getting real and talking about things that no one wants to talk about.

Here is one thing the leadership development expert wants everyone to know: Work-life balance is a mirage.

Or as she puts it: “Balance is bullsh*t.”
