"My grandma, Michela, inspires me every day. She immigrated to the U.S. from Italy when she was only 14, with the hope of giving a better life to future generations. Her bravery and sacrifice are something I’ll never take for granted."

“The Therapy for Black Girls podcast helped me stop thinking so much about a ‘no’ and tying it to a gender or race thing and ask myself, ‘Did I put my best foot forward? Have I always seemed professional?’ It really helps me direct and be an example for my daughters.”

 

Trina G.

Regional Human Resource Director
Region 6

“The author is a neuroscientist. His message is that humans have made massive changes by indulging in big thinking. If we can get all of our associates thinking differently, thinking way beyond incremental, it can drive a lot of great ideas and make Walmart a powerhouse well into the future.”

 

Angon G.

Senior Director
Home Office
