An Ode to Summer
Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.
It has been one busy summer! There has been much to ingest and digest as we all continue to think about how to best make a difference in our workplaces through meaningful and inclusive connections. There has never been a better time to...rest. Yes, rest.
There is a lot of work to do in the coming months. Much of it will be quite difficult, and it will need all of us to be rested and energized.
In these last few weeks of summer, our Call to Action for everyone working on inclusion is to get some rest. Enjoy the summer. Bask in the sun. Sit outside and enjoy your favorite beverage. Smile. Just be...without having to be anywhere in particular or be anything to anyone for a moment. Just be.
And if you need a bit of help easing into a restful space...the following videos from The Office will remind you that as serious as our work is, we do it best when we don't take ourselves so seriously!
Happy & Restful Summer!
