What We’re Reading, Watching, Listening, and Learning in January

By |January 21st, 2021|

As we enter a new year, there is always the temptation to leave the past behind us. Never before has that urge been so strong as with 2020, perhaps. But the past is never the past and in order to move forward, we have to acknowledge the value of reflection.  For many, last year was a wake-up call in terms of the war cry that rang out from the BIPOC community. We heard their [...]

A Leadership Gathering Like No Other

By |January 14th, 2021|

Like everything else in 2020, leadership was a little different. Virtual hangouts was the name of the game. However, despite that being the case, we still felt on fire from all the amazing interactions. Our theme of last year’s gathering was Imagine + Ignite and we felt as invigorated as ever by the collaborations. Our top Fellows took some time out to share their favorite moments, key takeaways, and all the ways they are [...]

New Year’s Resolutions and the Brave Jewelry Collection

By |January 7th, 2021|

The new year is a time for fresh starts, goal setting, and intentions. It can be an uplifting exercise in exploring your hopes and dreams. Or it can be a rigorous repeat of “what-ifs” and “maybe somedays.”  For many of us, the practice of setting resolutions is a week filled with hopeful, renewed energy, followed by a steady decline away from those January 1st wishes. But doesn’t everyone desire to stick with whatever it [...]

Last-Minute Gifts for Learners

By |December 22nd, 2020|

If 2020 has done nothing else, it has awoken many people to the injustices in the modern world. Though Covid-19 has dominated much of the headlines, lingering, systemic racism has been brought to mainstream attention in new ways this year. While news coverage may die down, our resolve to promote equality and equity must not. As we round the corner towards 2021, it’s important we don’t forget everything we have learned thus far and [...]

What We’re Thankful For

By |November 26th, 2020|

This year has presented some especially unique challenges for everyone. As we’ve all fought to find our footing in an uncertain time, it’s easy to get lost in the struggles and forget the triumphs. We are thankful every year for our customers, our Sseko Fellows, and our teams working hard all over the world. But our gratitude has absolutely exploded this year as we watched everyone work harder than ever to adapt, grow, and [...]
