Please read the full letter below.
Everyone, Sorry, I’m late on French time. 1235203418 Please accept my resignation as HCA chair and member because I think, in my opinion To date, the hostile, biased, and dismissive executive work environment has been at odds with the initial responsibilities provided when he was elected the last year. As a woman in leadership, I tried to assist the organization on many variables, but many were dismissed, including calls for proper formation, committees, lead sales, bias training, and accountability for harassment since last year. For my own happiness, I am leaving. This doesn’t take away from the lovely people I’ve met in this organization.
Wish you all the best.
Nikki Fowler 1235203418
