​Emery delivered a message of “I’m just like you” which was elegant and informative. 

Having a local speaker with international experience like Emery really meant he was able to connect with the audience and deliver an impactful message by sharing his story.
Following the event, we received great feedback, and it opened up the BRG to host many more events in 2023. I highly recommend engaging Awkward Conversations to support your organization’s I&D goals.
