A LEADER OF PROGRESS

Platform is founded by game changer, go-getter, legacy builder, and thought-Leader LaTonya Foster. Meeting and working with LaTonya really showed me that authenticity and critical thinking was crucial to DEI in the work place dialogue and action.

BALANCE ACT

The corporate ladder for a woman of color simply isn't a straight one, nor even the same path for another WOC. It is a path that twists, turns upside down, and can even go in circles at certain steps. The balance a WOC takes to advance in a career, be heard, and be respected, is unique to each step of the way. It takes the balance of your head, advocacy for you, your audience, your health.

VISUALS SYSTEM
THE GOAL

We created a system to focus on movement, or lack-of movement, that your path can have. Acknowledging not having complete control over your path but seeing yourself in a larger picture can help find facilitate different paths of recalibration until you reach the goal of taking center stage, with your advocacy and audience ready to hear you.
