In this episode, I am thrilled to talk about leadership with one of my closest friends and former Executive Director of Headwaters Foundation for Justice, David Nicholson.

With the context of impeachment and the 2020 election as backdrop to our conversation, we deconstruct what passes for “leadership” in current political arena versus what we believe our movements need to create a transformed future. We consider questions about power, values, accountability, and integrity. We also discuss how our multiple identities inform and impact how we think about leadership, how we show up as leaders, and some unique challenges POC and LGBTQ leaders face in exercising different leadership styles.
