I honestly struggled drafting the feature article for the employment practices newsletter on pay equality published in March, 2019. I had no idea it would be featured. I knew I wanted to write about best practices in diversity and inclusion. But after I began brainstorming, I reviewed and began incorporating information from a Law 360 article. When I completed my article, I second guessed myself. I thought it might be too different, or too controversial. I was also prepared to receive feedback about the article’s inadequacies in order to be published. And then it got approved, published, and featured. That felt great because I knew I wrote about a topic I personally and professionally valued, and I could be my whole-self when writing it. I have previously felt the need to make adjustments to blend in or fit in with most workplaces I have experienced in the past, but not at Tyson & Mendes.
