GATEKEEPER. Part 1. Are you a gatekeeper keeping the status quo and 'business as usual? August 10 2020.

 Are you a gatekeeper controlling who progresses within your organization

Are you a gatekeeper excluding others from advancing, accepting new ideas, different perspectives for change to take place in your community? 

Are you a gatekeeper excluding the average individual in education with a 1.5 or 2.0 GPA with others with a 3.5 or 4.0 GPA your main focus? 

Are you a gatekeeper focusing your efforts and attention on one sexual or orientated group (Black Females, LGBT, etc.) and excluding the opposite that subconsciously leaves no hope for the other (Black & Latino Males, etc.) to participate?
