Recently I got a great compliment from a woman I know. She said that “you are the Bernie Sanders of the financial sector”. I was thrilled and humbled. Then I thought there are many people trying to improve the societal and environmental condition by changing the financial sector. Don’t we all work in silence with little recognition. Haven’t we all been rolling the stone up the hill over many years, enduring hardships and ridicule. We have all been excluded from the “grownups table” where the real decisions have been made, because we don’t “understand”. All the time, our message has been clear, without compromise, never changing, simple, straightforward, and inclusive not exclusive.
Yes. Je suis Bernie Sanders, and I am honoured to wear this badge of distinction and so are many of my friends, We just don’t all have a Brooklyn accent.
