Inclusive Leadership in Nigeria

Submitted by Victor Ivoke

(Nigeria is home to over 250 ethnic groups, with over 500 languages, and great diversity of geography, customs, religion, and life circumstances.

Accompaniment

Submitted by Katie Sayers

(Katie is an experienced Inclusive Leader, a member of the ILC, a yoga instructor, and brand new Mom!)

As we each lead by example in our own lives, I invite us to continue to act with intention as we consider whom we can accompany along a path of service, in building inclusive and vibrant communities.
