Crush & Lovely
Diversity and inclusion is a challenge that we’ve been talking about for a long time. But we couldn’t help but notice, over the collective experience of everyone on the Crush & Lovely team, we’ve barely seen that conversation move forward. We wanted to find a way to make a difference and see measurable change.
Change happens because we make it happen. There’s nothing magical about the process — it’s about sweat, elbow-grease, and hard work. What’s magic are the outcomes that become possible when we stay committed and follow all-the-way through. We could help make a difference if we provided the backing of a collective, to help protect those that put themselves at personal risk.
We asked participants to make a specific and measurable commitment to changing their organizations, to write it down, and to allow us to follow up with them to help them see it through.

Since our inaugural impact dinner with Rose Gold, we have received commitments from over 120 women across the United States. Commitments include personal goals, like mentoring younger women, and some include organizational goals to build pipeline programs for people of color. We continue to work with many of these women, and continue to welcome commitments from anyone who wants to make a positive difference with the backing of a collective.
I appreciate you holding me accountable for my goals! In 2018, I have achieved my goals and more.
