    You go, Jesse! I especially appreciate that this is coming from you. 🙂 I concur that it’s time we spoke out especially if we serve as role models to other professionals in our field of specialization. Thank you!

    Jesse,
    This is probably one of the MOST profound and relevant Professional videos of our time. Bravo! Bravo for not only addressing this, but for starting the hard work of carving out a template of actionable steps people can take! Because healing the disconnect starts at each individual relationship, and giving well meaning Caucasian people a segway to start those meaningful discussions is paramount to getting the ball rolling in the right direction. So I admire your courage in taking on this gargantuan task. Salute!

    PS: I have shared this video with many people in the Professional Agile Community that share in my opinion.
