Tune in to hear Jayzen talk about one of the most important points to remember when developing your brand….What you choose not to do is as important as what you choose to do.  Remember, your brand is about making strategic consciously competent decisions to show up and lead with the brand that you want.  Now is the time to think about those things that you do because they are easy or on autopilot, but in reality, may be pulling you away from the brand that you want to be.

This week, Jayzen is thrilled to welcome Javier Constante to the show.  He is the President of Dow in Brazil and Latin America and as an out senior executive at a global company, Javier stands as an advocate and role model for bringing your full, authentic self to work.  A true inspiration with an amazing career story!

So, as we celebrate Pride Month, let's create, support, and thrive in workplaces that truly value each and every one of us. Here's to a month—and a lifetime—of pride, progress, and power!
