What’s one thing you love about yourself? Have you always?

Through the process of gaining confidence in my abilities and being comfortable with the girl in the mirror, I realized that I am freer and more authentic when I trust myself to just exist. Not perform, just BE myself… and those who get it, we vibe.

Do you think people can really change?

Yes! But it is hard. People have to want to change or have a profound experience that forces their perspective to shift.

What are you currently working through that others can’t see?

Accepting my redefined identity as a daughter. My parents were older than most of my friends’ parents growing up. As someone who they patiently cultivated and wholeheartedly loved, it is my duty, responsibility, and honor to be there to support their late chapters. My identity as a daughter had been primarily someone who took and received. My identity now is someone who must graciously give.


Join us for an engaging and interactive Zoom panel with Be Equitable team members who will discuss important issues currently facing the LGBTQ+ community, explore the power of allyship, and transforming workspaces that foster a sense of belonging for all.
Listen, learn and connect with other DEI colleagues and changemakers who every day bravely speak the truth about how together we can create a just and equitable world for all. We hope that you will join us.

This session is part of our #BE365 series which celebrates, educates, and highlights cultural moments and under-represented voices throughout the year.

Cook Ross is now BE Equitable

These past few years have been incredibly tumultuous and evolving, where we have witnessed how complex and messy our world is.

In a world of tick-a-box trainings and quick fixes, we at Be Equitable are going after something more satisfying -- we’re here for the transformations. For the forward thinkers and future leaders who know the journey is long and are still ready, we see you and we want to partner with you.

Let’s go beyond the buzzwords to create workplaces that work for people of all races, ethnicities, identities, and abilities. It won’t be neat. And it certainly won’t be simple. Our BE team is ready and committed to get it done.

As we enter this next chapter of our story, we invite you to BE bold, BE inclusive, and BE authentic to the vision you have for yourself and your organization. And together we can create workplaces that are just and equitable for all.
