Unlike the traditional, authoritarian leaders he grew up knowing, David wanted to work collaboratively and support other people in their life journeys.
“Our approach here is that leadership should be shared here, should be collaborative, participatory – so everybody has a voice, everybody has something to offer.”
“You want to build a society inclusive of people with disabilities and inclusive of people of colour and immigrants. It looks good on paper, but you still have to really beat down some doors and still have to get that message out. It’s still a struggle.”
