If there’s anything January taught us, it’s BEEN time to do better.

From Twitter to Instagram, my feed is flooded by memes and graphics about how January must just be an extension of 2020, culminating in the insurrection on our capital by domestic terrorists.

And while I’ve laughed at dumpster fire meme after dumpster fire meme, the truth is that 2021 and 2020 are just heightened examples of what America has always been.

For me, it’s therapeutic to laugh at these memes and write off 2020 — maybe even January 2021 — as something to get over. But I can’t lose sight of one simple fact: since this nation’s founding, it’s been time to do better. January 2021 has just reinforced this… as will February, March, and so on.

At oneTILT we’re focused on helping leaders #DoBetter in the workplace. We spend ⅓ of our life at work. That’s 90,000 hours. And the truth is, work doesn’t actually work for all of us. As leaders in the workplace, we have the responsibility and opportunity to be more equitable and inclusive every day. And oneTILT is here to help.

This year, we’re refining what’s been working in our practice and launching new tools to help managers across sectors — from tech to education — lead more equitably. Here are a few things we’ve got in store:

  • Continue to nourish and connect education leaders through our tiltForward fellowship. We’ll continue to serve 20+ fellows a year in our fellowship while strengthening our alumni community. Interested in learning more? Uzma’s your girl.

It’s a big year for all of us. If January has taught us anything, it’s a sobering reminder that it’s been time to do better. We’re here to do the work with you.
