A Tribute to Wrisë Booker

In the early days of C2HR’s existence, when our association was known as CTHRA, Wrisë Booker served as the managing partner. It is with great sadness that we mourn her recent passing. Known as the “mentor to leaders,” her legacy lives on in the hearts of all who knew her. Kathy Johnson, COO of Digital Diversity Network, was kind enough to share these words, “A conversation with Wrisë was rarely brief or without an aha moment.  She was a nurturer by nature and genuinely interested in peeling back the layers to see how you were doing.  Her presence and inimitable style notwithstanding, I shall always remember Wrisë for her sense of calm; her unflinching optimism; and her love for Christmastime, the color purple, and her poodles.  The world is certainly less classy without her.”
