I’ve always been a big believer in goal setting. During all of our time at home over the last year, I’ve encouraged my children to set goals for how they would like to use this time in a productive and meaningful way. How can they use this time to serve others? What new skill or topic can they learn?
For many, goal setting happens at the start of the year, but by February, our resolutions may already be fading into memory. My hope is that this issue of Perspectives offers some motivation and inspiration to get back on track. Whether it’s achieving better work life balance, getting your estate plan in order, or even just reading more, we aim to provide the tools you need to reach your aspirations.
This time of year, we’re also reminded of the goals we all must set to foster and support diversity in our workplaces and communities. In February, Black History Month, we celebrate the crucial role people of color have had on the political, cultural, and moral fiber of our country. And March brings Women’s History Month, a celebration of women’s achievements and a call to action to continue the march towards equality. I encourage you to read the feature on guidance for business leaders working to address racial equity, penned by Dr. Leeno Karumanchery, one of North America’s preeminent diversity and inclusion experts and a Boston Private partner. And learn from the female leaders in our community with some of the wise advice they have to share.
I hope you enjoy the second issue of Perspectives as much as I did, and please, let us know what you think! We would love to hear your ideas for future issues.
... we're reminded of the goals we all must set to foster and support diversity in our workplaces and communities.
