I hope this message finds you well and that you remain safe and sound.
I am the Owner/Founder of AllThingzAP, where it is our primary mission for individuals to be their authentic selves. The best way I can contribute throughout this pandemic is by making sure to continue and spread an inclusive, diverse, and equitable environment.
In the middle of April, I hosted my second virtual webinar with panelists John Baldino, Katee Van Horn, & Janice Gassam, where we discussed COVID-19 and its Impact Towards Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion. Click here to view the recorded webinar.

Mental Health Check
I've been using the below, which I found on social media, as a guide for myself, family, friends, & colleagues to share how they are feeling during these tough times. It is a simple way to express how we are currently feeling. Currently, I am yellow and find myself between orange and yellow. Please share this with your family, friends, and colleagues to freely express how you are feeling.
Here’s the deal
This is just a reminder that there is a lot of racism and hatred toward people of color and Asian–Americans, among other groups, and therefore I am asking, as a white cisgender male, to use your privilege as an advantage to those individuals who are not privileged. Please check out this video by Elena Valentine with Skill Scout in collaboration with Kwynology and Creative Chaos Photography.
We have certainly come a long way and have had setbacks and continue to have a long way to go, which is why we must continue, especially during COVID-19, to have those tough and difficult conversations surrounding inclusion, diversity, and equity.
Please remain cautious, safe, vigilant, and optimistic.
