The Air Force Has Problem. Become a 15%'er

Lace up YOUR boots. Time to get to the work of diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging.

"I don't count my sit-ups; I only start counting when it starts hurting…because that's when it really counts." - Muhammad Ali

This week: Torin and Julie dig into the new racial disparity report released by the Inspector General of the Air Force. We got a problem, ya'll. Time to stop talking and start taking action. Also, new to us is the 15% pledge. Can your organization (and your household) commit to 15% of your spend to Black owned businesses? Every dollar matters and we have an opportunity to make a commitment to our neighbors, our communities and our future.
