As I write this, my wife Linda and I are heading home after a two-week adventure cruise here in Antarctica. It’s always been a bucket-list item for me to touch the seventh continent. However, as I think back to the planning stages of this trip a year ago, I admit I felt a sense of urgency. While I’m an optimist on all matters – including the potential for technology to help reverse climate change – I worried that in my lifetime this special place might never be the same. So we decided we should embark on this trip sooner versus later.

I recently was appointed as a global co-lead of PRIDE@VMware after five years serving as the co-founder and co-lead of PRIDE@VMware Austin. I’m excited to be developing and executing strategies on a global scale, which is something new for our Power of Difference Communities (PODs) structure. Through my roles with VMinclusion, our corporate-wide Diversity & Inclusion initiative, I have developed leadership skills I could not develop through my current job as a HR Source Employee Advisor.
