Every day I am inspired by my teammates here at Nike who recognize the importance of the work we are doing.
I’m also inspired by the various organizations we partner with who are on the ground, in our communities, committed to creating change and combatting the inequities we all face daily.Karol Collymore, Nike Senior Director of Inclusive Community for Social & Community Impact
