🔵We hosted our last Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Forum of 2021 today, and it was AMAZING! Dr. Felicia Blow and Dr. Ron Carlee led a difficult but necessary discussion about unconscious biases. They were followed by an insightful keynote address by Michael Bach , Founder, and CEO of the Canadian Centre for Diversity and Inclusion, and author of Birds of All Feathers: Doing Diversity and Inclusion Right. Moving the needle in Hampton Roads!

When are you going to recognize Angela’s Power List accomplishments and stop deleting her emails?
Spent nine months deciding to call the region “The 757” because somehow everyone in the country knows where that area code is located. Except now we are the 757 and the 948. Faceplant.
Do NOT like 757 and no one I've asked does. Who did you survey. Just plain stupid.
I wrote this many times. I'm trying to express my feelings without being overly critical or dismissive. I'll just say I'm surprised by your choice and not at all supportive. I turned 50 yesterday. So maybe it's a generational thing. But if the idea was to get behind a brand that was recognizable, this seems the opposite. We're going to rebrand an area with hundreds of years of history, a distinctive culture, and defining geography based on social media trendiness? Is that because social media trendiness has a history of long-term predictive power?
Are you tired of reordering business cards? Everything is digital and so does your contact info need to be. What if I told you that you could have one card that will serve as your business card and have all of your social media in one place. Look no further! Check out the link below and make your order today!

Please tell me you will not support the establishment of a basketball court, or two, in the Atlantic Avenue/boardwalk area, in the wide open, for beach goers to contend with the potential trouble it likely would cause. This is what I'm hearing, and it's disturbing. Any such project should be blocks away and walled or fenced off from the general public. If this thing goes up there, I'm not going back, and will inform others via the internet. This will be only a huge mistake, or a basketball Mecca. My money's on the mistake.
Ages 16 and up!!! On the spot interviews and offers!!! You may contact me personally for any questions! Children are welcome.If you cannot find childcare. You will get a guest pass for them to go to stay and play until your interview is over.
Local Business Owner Here: Voting is Now Open! 🖊️ Please vote for me for Armed Forces Insurance Military Spouse of the Year for 2019. 🇺🇸 You can vote ONCE PER DAY now through Feb 12th! 😘 I am thrilled to be considered for this honorable title amongst dozens of other amazing military spouses... 😍 ...I would be honored to use this opportunity to push for grants from the private sector that will help fund milspouse startups and push for governmental initiatives that will eliminate some of the barriers milspouses face when trying to pursue digital entrepreneurship throughout the world. 💻 Thank you for your consideration and support! 💙
