Jessica Ayden Li, Founder & CEO of Justice and Logic, a DEI & Non-profit Coach & Consultant (and Jerry's HS classmate!), joins us on Episode 081 to share her story of finding her purpose in helping organizations build leaders and to build anti-racist communities.
We celebrate her finding her in mission in working with non-profits to help them build better leaders to help achieve their missions in a responsible way.
We support her work in making sure that Asian Americans are doing our part to make the world a better place.
We are inspired by her dedication to walk the walk in all ways of her life to help the world a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive place.
