Happy New Year. We hope you and yours are taking care in these times. As we connect, build and grow with old comrades and as we create new formations to move our work forward, may we be emboldened by our collective political mandates - informed by relationships, strategy and transformation. We're excited to bring you our tenth episode of Fortification - our final episode in this series of podcasts - a conversation about love, leadership and the spiritual challenges of our times.
