We know better. Now we must do better.

We know better. Now we must do better.

The brilliant writer Maya Angelou once said, “Do the best you can. Then when you know better, do better.” The senseless, murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor-merely the latest in a far-too-long list of Black people who did not deserve to die-has awakened a desire in this nation and our community. Justice must be done, and we must be a part of ensuring that it does.

Mentorship Matters: Belen Cosme

Belen Cosme grew up assuming she would clean houses for a living. It was what her mother had always done and what was familiar to her. At that time, she didn’t know a single person who had been to college or who worked in a professional office environment. It wasn’t until her first internship with Kinder Morgan during her senior year of high school that she abandoned that idea and began to consider new possibilities. Through Genesys Works, she realized that her career options were far broader than she had assumed.
