The Heart to Heart team created a safe space for us to share, grow and even be vulnerable. In the midst of our nation grappling with systemic racism, we were challenged to look within at and sit with our own unconscious bias and how we communicate and show up for everyday.  This leadership series is impactful and not for the faint at heart. There will be “in your face”;  “heart to heart” “crucial conversations” moments, but it’s worth it!”  -Loretta McKinley, Kyocera SGS Precision Tools, Inc
