“We, as a community, need to imagine leadership differently”

logo Latest in a series of posts responding to the George Floyd killing logo

We, as a community, need to imagine leadership differently.

  • There is evidence that Black leadership can lead to more peaceful police-public relations.
  • There is also evidence demonstrating that women lead in the same ways and as well as men.
  • The inclusion of womxn in policing has a demonstrated effect on constructively addressing gender-based violence.
  • It is unconscionable that we do not have officers openly representing the LGBT+ community and no task force to assist officers as they try to improve their relations with the LGBT+ community as well.
  • ¬†Addressing gender-based violence is inextricably linked to addressing white supremacy/misanthrophy.
  • Strong leadership is about active listening.

    In response to this post: I really appreciate Prof. Ochs here. If I was mayor Donchez, after reading Ochs data based knowledge/feedback, I would immediately appoint Captain Nellie Kott as chief of BPD. She is ready and very capable.
