The FGL Leadership Project
We believe that your perception of what is possible in the world strongly dictates your outcome within it.
Therefore we felt it a worthy effort to highlight the stories of some of the diverse leaders in our own community. We want to uncover some of their challenges, strategies to succeed, and mental approaches that have led to their success in being a positive influence on those around them and having a place in society they are proud of.
We hope that hearing their perspectives will help educate those that need a fresh perspective or may speak to those dealing with related challenges and need inspiration to see through to a similar outcome.
Knowledge is power, and without learning more about what those challenges are we can’t help irradiate them or give people the tools to overcome them.

We strongly believe that everyone should be completely accepted however they are are. We want a society where everyone’s uniqueness is showcased and celebrated.

So, we pledge to be a part of the solution to eliminate racism, discrimination of any kind, and systematic inequality… working towards a more equal, more just, and BETTER society. Here is how we have started:
While our culture has always been inclusive and diverse we’ve engrained it even further in our culture guidelines to build it into the thought process of the company.
Added the pledge to our monthly goal-setting sessions so that it stays top of mind and we are constantly reminded to allocate time and effort to further and support the cause
