While at our quarterly meeting of EOS Implementers, I heard a story from a fellow Rotarian (Newport Beach) that impressed upon me the true meaning of inclusion. My favorite part of the story happens when my well-meaning friend Will asked Jen to think about her limitations before figuring out how she could best assist him at work. Her response was precious, and a good reminder that service above self applies everywhere.
Read the Los Angeles Times article here.
An update to the story: Will mentioned that each time he has a particular need (someone to handle his many emails, coordinate his schedule, etc.), Jen has easily stepped up to the task.
[Ed note: The article incorrectly states that Jen has cerebral palsy.]
