Why is EDI Important?

We are all humans with unique prospective and different life experiences. It is important for us first to recognize the value of differences, combating discrimination, and promote inclusiveness.  EDI fosters higher degrees of engagement, productivity, and innovation that contribute to increased revenue and deeper connections among us.  


What is The Current?.

A bi-weekly resource list of how you can make a positive change in your community through education, engagement, activation, and allyship..

The Current is brought to you by Tovah Cook, an accomplished Brand Creative Leader who seeks justice in her daily work. Tovah is the author of Black Binder, A Notebook for Activist and Accomplices. It is a collection of curated prompts designed to propel anti-racist questions into actions and solutions for black activists and their accomplices. Tovah also has a background in architecture and graphic design. She currently is a Designer at a self-driving company storytelling new empathetic perspectives within the trucking space.
