While I respect the desire for a workplace that feels safe to everyone regardless of political affiliation, as a feminist I also deeply believe that the personal is political and the political is personal. I respect when leaders want to bring their whole self to the professional stage. A desire to shut down all political conversations at work, in online message boards, or in real world situations tends to only breed environments where certain viewpoints can thrive. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P55t6eryY3g&list=PLJA_jUddXvY7v0VkYRbANnTnzkA_HMFtQ&index=13
