A recurring theme we’ve seen throughout this season has been the importance of rest. On this episode, we sat down with Danielle Hawthorne, VP of Programs at Code2040 just after her three-month sabbatical. Danielle shares how she was able to reset and refresh herself, her spirituality, and her work with Code2040, a people of color Organization that serves to mobilize the largest racial equity community in tech. As the leader of a team that equips Black and Latinx technologists to be racial equity advocates in their careers, communities, and on their college campuses, she shares how important and how much of a privilege it is to be able to take time off in a world that rewards the hustle. Danielle also offers inspiration on how marginalized communities can still renew themselves and their spirits in the day-to-day. This is a soulful message every leader needs to hear.
