I had the immense honor to speak at the Transformative Impact Summit this past weekend. To be in a room filled with change makers from around the globe at some of the most amazing organizations in web2 and web3 was a dream and I am filled with gratitude for those who supported my ability to attend this talk and for those who invited me to speak.
My talk was titled "Restoring Our Humanity Through Community", located in the social justice track, and I spoke about how those of us in web3 community building are holding space for those developers who are using emerging technology to address the metacrisis.
I am UNAPOLOGETIC about wanting to help strengthen communities with whatever skills I possess at any given moment. I am a human first and I will always help humans first.
My work as a community builder is no different. I hold space for some of the most amazing and passionate minds in web3 so THEY can use our technology to address ANY issue we face as a collective. I am stunned that at this phase in 2023, with all of the chaos and systemic chaos swirling around us, that people still believe we're in a "carry on as normal" mentality.
Addressing the true issues in our communities using the technology we have chosen to embrace IS our role as community builders. Our role is to support one another and help create viable solutions for our collective human journey. I am and always will be grounded in public goods, I will always support the commons and will always work to move the collective forward through compassion, empathy, conscious leadership AND community building. Always.
