This Week, I Am…
:zap: Continuing to prepare for our 2022 Lightning Awards, which includes starting to finalize some of the program messaging and the nomination form (which I’ll then share with our Marketing Ops and WebDev Teams for website build).

:rainbow_flag: Putting together a proposal on planned EOY activities for our LGBTQIA+ ERG and its action-oriented group (Pridetheon and Pridetheon Impact), which will be shared with our exec sponsor and higher ups, as they’ll need to approve the requested budget. I’m also working on trying to secure guest speaker(s) for our October Pridetheon Impact meeting (for National Bullying Prevention Month).

What I am Most Excited About…
:luggage: I’m starting to plan some upcoming personal trips, including a friend’s wedding in Portugal next month, so I’m excited to do some more traveling and connect with friends!
