These are trying times. We see a world that feels turned upside down, and share deep despair and anger at the racial injustice behind the recent killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and countless more before them.

We know that better is both possible and necessary. We at CFAR are committed to making a difference where we are able—by working with leaders and organizations to create space for dialogue and connection, and through our deeply held belief that differences are a virtue, not a liability, in the impactful outcomes we seek.

Leaders have an important role in our collective next chapter to demonstrate values and build cultures that embrace differences, learning, hope, and commitment to change.It is a time of great significance and a monumental task. As ever, we believe and know that we are in this together.

Debbie Bing, CFAR President and Principal
