How we show up matters. It matters to our organizations, our communities, our family, and our friends. Most importantly, it matters to ourselves—to the person we present to the world and to the person we see in the mirror. Showing up as our best selves each and every day isn’t easy. It’s easier to give in to our emotions, our biases, and our perspectives; but self-worth, value, and leadership comes from doing the hard work. It takes work to learn our triggers and manage our emotions, to be confident in the face of fear, to search and learn our own biases in order to see past them for a diverse and inclusive culture. The good news is hard work is always worth it. That hard work can be seen in a high-functioning team doing amazing things in your organization; it can be seen in healthy relationships with your family and friends; it can be seen when communities work together for better opportunities for all; and it’s evident in a calm, self-confident, and invaluable reflection staring back at you in the mirror. The best part is—we have the power to choose how we show up each day.
Summit 2021 is all about choosing our own path, our own story. Like the world-famous New York subway system, we are hopping on where we are and we’re headed “down the line,” a destination that inspires, encourages, and is full of hope. Summit this year offers 4 tracks or lines that will take you on a journey from where you are to where you know you want to be. Choose your line, take a ride, and commit to the destination.

Another great stop to make during Summit is at our Allies & Admins Expo. Throughout the year you have access to amazing companies who help you solve a problem at work or work on a problem at home. Summit is a fantastic time to interact with these companies and learn more about the resources they provide. You never know when they will help you show up knowledgeable and connected during the next work challenge.
