Hello/hola, esteemed colleagues:


Recently, I was in conversation with a fantastic group of individuals and I shorthanded (as we do) “LGBTQ” – one of the group stopped me and said, “please list all the things instead of shorthanding. Naming things brings them to the surface and to the light” – and so I do my best and honor that request…and then this comes across my desk today…


How are you naming things in conversation, presentations, etc or how are you encouraging others to name things?

Have a great day!
