By now many of you have heard about the controversial new voting legislation that passed in Georgia recently and it has caused quite the stir. This new law is frankly unnecessary and is largely retaliation against Georgia flipping during the 2020 election cycle. You’d expect to hear something from civil rights and voting advocacy groups in protest, but this new law has brought out a new class of advocates: business leaders.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen something like that. In the 1960s, when Dr. King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, a reception was to be held in his honor in Atlanta. However, many of the city’s prominent leaders, politicians, and business owners were against attending. That is until the CEO of Coca Cola stepped in and used his influence and position to sway the community to do what was right.
My friend, Ed Bastian, CEO of Delta Air Lines, and other Georgia business leaders stepped in to do their part to try and help create a more favorable outcome. Check out my latest video to hear more and learn why leadership matters and why leading with morals is vital to our society.
