Pop-Up Mentor: Charlotte Mayor Vi Alexander Lyles


There were so many gems in today's Pop-Up Mentor session with Mayor Lyles like "equity does not mean equal" or "find what resonates with you & keeping growing in it" or her mom's advice "watch their feet, not their mouths".

However, my greatest takeaway from today's session was in Mayor Lyles's actions.  She opened the lunch by giving us an understanding of the building & history we were in.  Later, she shared with us in great pride the photos of all Charlotte mayors.  Then, she graciously & generously took photos with us...and of us

If Mayor Lyles' mom could have watched her daughter's feet today, she would have been very, very proud of her daughter's actions. 

Thank you, Mayor Lyles.
