The #RoundtableTuesday panel tackled leadership styles and consequences with Utahns from a variety of experiences. Panelists included:
Amir Jackson of Nurture the Creative Mind, a 501 c(3) nonprofit that empowers and establishes self-value in youth through creativity, while developing marketable skills.

Jorge Fiero of Rico Brand, maker of preservative-free, handmade gourmet Mexican food, available at Utah grocery and specialty food stores in Utah.
Author Pam Houston, whose latest book is Air Mail: Letters of Politics, Pandemics, and Place (Torrey House Press). "When the state of Colorado ordered its residents to shelter in place in response to the spread of coronavirus, writers Pam Houston and Amy Irvine—who had never met—began a correspondence based on their shared devotion to the rugged, windswept mountains that surround their homes, one on either side of the Continental Divide. As the numbers of infected and dead rose and the nation split dangerously over the crisis, Houston and Irvine found their letters to one another as necessary as breath. Part tribute to wilderness, part indictment against tyranny and greed, Air Mail: Letters of Politics, Pandemics, and Place reveals the evolution of a friendship that galvanizes as it chronicles a strange new world."
