“We are a community of storytellers”

“We are a community of storytellers” 2560 1676 I Need A Speaker

The Golden Globe Awards inspire a lot of buzz. What won best picture? Who was she wearing? While it’s fun to chat about those things, my favorite part of the event was Jane Fonda’s speech.

As this year’s recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement in film, Fonda referred to the industry as “a community of storytellers” and delivered a passionate plea for diversity.

Wait. Storytellers and diversity? I had no idea that I Need A Speaker has so much in common with the glitterati!

Like Fonda, I also believe that ” … stories have a way — they can change our hearts and our minds, they can help us see each other in a new light, to have empathy.”

Later in her acceptance speech, Fonda noted: “Stories, they really can change people. But there’s a story we’ve been afraid to see and hear about ourselves … a story about which voices we respect and elevate.”

It’s inspiring and refreshing to hear other people support our values. I Need A Speaker was built to share stories in the interest of mutual understanding. It was built to help people discover the human similarities in all of us. And it was built to proudly amplify new voices.

We’re listening.
