Diversity Dashboard: One Woman's Public Service Story

Diversity Dashboard: One Woman's Public Service Story

I can remember taking a class in grad school while studying for my Master of Public Administration (MPA); it was one of the core classes, where we analyzed Katrina, the devastating 2005 hurricane that changed New Orleans forever, as an emergency management case study. I can distinctly remember watching the accompanying documentary on the edge of tears while my peers took notes. I feel strangely seen and invisible at the same time thinking; how can we as leaders govern when disparity is so obvious but on that same thought, how can we NOT govern in this moment?
