“Like a [W]As a Christian man in America, I am part of a declining subset that has held the levers of power politically and economically in almost every field throughout the history of the United States, âDowd wrote. âAnd although my Irish Catholic ancestors had to push for a seat at the table, we are still part of that dominant power group. Yes, the corridors of power have slowly let in some people of color, women, people. of a different faith, and people of a different sexual persuasion. [W]Christian men still dominate the rooms where most decisions are madeâ¦ This has to change in a much more dramatic way. “

âWe don’t have to wait and our country is in desperate need of more diverse leaders,â said Dowd. “It is this diverse leadership that will not only more represent what America looks like today, but it will give us the opportunity to find solutions that homogeneous models of leadership are not able to find.”
“Yes, let me repeat, we as [W]Christian men should do what true leadership requires and practice a level of humility that demonstrates strength by walking away from the center of the room and starting to cede our seats at the table, âhe said. immediately doubled. âWe should take this step forward. not because we feel threatened, but because we know it is morally right and that is what would help America in this troubled time.

I should interrupt less and let other people from diverse backgrounds share their thoughts. “

âFor my part, I am excited to see how a whole different group of people will lead and make our country and the Earth a better place,â Dowd wrote. âLet’s do this, guys. Let’s put the country and our fellow human beings first before our own egos. Let’s do this not out of a sense of insecurity that we are losing power, but out of a sense of security that others cannot as well. work better than we can do right now. “
