Dr. Alaa Murabit is a UN High-Level Commissioner on health, employment, and economic growth. She is one of 17 globally United Nations Sustainable Development Goal advocates, as well as a medical doctor and women's rights champion and strategist. She has traveled the world and met people who are leaders in their own industries. From names that we know to names that we don't, there are people who have championed inclusive leadership more than anything else. At The Table is a collection of in-depth conversations and interviews with leaders in all industries. It's looking at how we create systems and structures and communities and selves that really represent what we need in the world today. It's called At The Table because the single most important thing is for us to create and cultivate spaces. We invite you to connect with, to learn from, and to teach one another about the importance of inclusive leadership. We want to make sure sure that when you are at any table you are bringing somebody with you, an idea with you, or a perspective with you that isn't already there.
