The best things in life are on the other side of difficult conversations.

Our organisation is completely run by volunteers. A small dedicated group of people who do the heavy lifting on behalf of everyone else

This year it is these 11 young women.

They have different motivations for their choices, different needs, and different career and life goals.

I am also a volunteer and I know its human to want to feel appreciated

I also know fair is not equal and the world does not always make it easy for people to feel valued for what they do.

For the last six weeks I have been struggling with a choice that has to be made.

My number one priority is that choice ensures that the people who are doing the heavy lifting on behalf of our organisation are being valued.

I looked forward to me making fair decisions that value the people I value.

I also know that if all participants in the conversation are going to move beyond where we are, we have to be willing to look towards a new future and what each participant needs to get there.

“The best things in life are on the other side of difficult conversations.” Kwame Christian

Today I would like to express gratitude for the people and organisations we work with that are committed to genuine relationships
