1) What I learned in 2018 is that being committed to principles is more important than ever before; work on projects that are important to you and stay the course.
2) I want to stay dedicated to the things that have gotten me here, and be bold with my goals and the people I want to help. The content landscape is ever-changing and currently the industry is going towards more values-based content, which I think is great. This is what Wondros has always been about, and is what I had in mind when founding the company.
3) We hope to serve more people who are making the world a more interesting and better place. I want to support people and products that do positive things in the world.
4) I did a piece recently where I filmed some of the remaining civil rights veterans who walked with MLK. It was a privilege and an honor. Here is a link to watch the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aY8rnKFqYWY
Also working with XPRIZE on launching the Alzheimer’s Prize. It’s been a fantastic opportunity to work on this and find a community that is trying to solve Alzheimer’s. I’m also excited about my collaboration with INQNET, a research consortium that aims to bring together businesses, non-profits, research and educational institutions and laboratories to advance quantum technologies and computing.
5) We have personal commitment to diversity at Wondros. Not just skin color, gender, or disabilities, but people from disparate parts of the world who bring a unique perspective to Wondros. I’m proud to say Wondros has a reputation as an environment that encourages female talent. We’re also integrating a new applicant tracking system to help us capture EEOC (equal employment opportunity commission) data to analyze where we’re lacking in diversity, and then address issues that surface.
6) We’re currently migrating our postproduction team away from Windows 98. It’s a risk, but we think it’s one worth taking.
