Sarah, Katie, Alex, & Darrell Green
But what does this have to do with Katie, Alex, & Darrell Green (one of the GOAT Washington and dare I say NFL players)? In a speech he gave at my work, he said something that really resonated with me.
Things are caught before they're taught.
I hope Katie and Alex are catching on to a few key concepts:
We live in a global community and we can make a difference in the world.
It's totally cool for girls to do things they are interested in...even if it's playing with data on the weekends.
Hopefully things will be different as the kids get older, but regardless, they should support each other. Alex can be an ambassador for girls in his class or Katie so that they are treated equitably.
To sum it all up, Tableau is why I learned more about women's empowerment issues and why I'm trying to do something about it.
