On the few occasions that I got to interact with him, Bob Collymore left something in me. Something to think about, to aspire to. We took this picture after I’d moderated a #HeroesForChange session in 2017, a few months after I’d resigned as a News Anchor and he said, ‘Don’t ever feel the need to choose between motherhood and work. You shouldn’t have to. I think companies should continue to allow new mothers a chance at both by creating the right environment for them’. A progressive thinker. What a sad day indeed. #RIPBobCollymore. Condolences to his family, friends and colleagues 🙏🏾 #NotAllHeroesWearCapes
