Gloria is a first-generation American born of Congolese parents that immigrated to Orange County, California. Drawing on her own life experiences, she is passionate about creating belonging and inclusion that can benefit people and amplify the most marginalized voices. Gloria is a global leader on diversity, inclusion, and belonging who spends much of her time speaking at UN Events, mentoring at hackathons, and leading social justice causes. After the murder of George Floyd, she was able to raise $7000 in 48 hours to make sure that every library in her town had Anti-Racism literature through a campaign called “Read Against Racism.” She believes that true social justice can only be accomplished by doing the work in your heart, your home, and your community.

As I reread an article in our North Country Breezes by Allie Lakey back in June 2014 I was reminded of the assemblies I attended in the past. At this year’s Assembly 2022 my experience was exhilarating to see the diversity and inclusion again gathered from those around the country. Singing along with the all women band was great knowing that it was their first time altogether in person.
