I’m very excited, because in this episode, I will be interviewing Holly Garretson of The Letter People:

The mission of Letter People is to connect, empower and educate the LGBTQ+ Professional Community by hosting mixers, talks and by providing outreach and mentor opportunities for the purpose of nurturing business growth and creating resources to learn, inform and inspire.
