At Every Level Leadership, our values reflect equity, thriving, and liberation. As a part of this commitment, we care about what opportunities we have and what challenges stand in our way. The most recent decision by the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade negatively impacts how both people and organizations can have race and gender equity. This decision will have a negative impact on how much your colleagues and staff can thrive, particularly Black women.
