Newsletters. While most people don't like their inbox cluttered with more mail than it needs, I actually look forward to receiving certain e-newsletters on a daily and weekly basis. I love reading and learning new things, so each newsletter is an opportunity for me to add to my toolbox of knowledge (or 'stay woke' as the kids say.)
Not only do the curators of these kick ass newsletters work super, duper hard to pull together this amazing content, but it's vital information for our every day lives! For those who want to know what's going on in the world of tech and diversity, to those who are looking to work on their fitness, enhance their sneaker game, or boost their creativity and entrepreneurship, these newsletters will provide the major keys for you to level up.
