The EmpowR Voice Blog features the voices and perspectives that disrupt the status quo, advocate for changes to dominant culture, and embrace the vulnerability of sharing lived experiences to encourage empathy, healing, community, accountability, equity, belonging, and transformative justice.

Justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion work lies in decolonizing leadership and it is time to pass the torch in decision making to a full diversity of people with marginalized identities.
