I'm Adam Cockell, creator and publisher of Your 9AM, a free weekly newsletter empowering people to create change at work.
I went from studying legal theory and social movements in college to running engineering teams at startups in the San Francisco Bay Area. Along the way I realized that the most important work to be done in the workplace isn't launching the next cool app or driving more conversions but instead building awareness and supporting the people around us (especially the ones that come to work for us every day).
From startups to corporate America, it's becoming increasingly apparent that the context and history that inform individual experiences of work are often misunderstood or completely ignored. While seemingly trivial, these types of failures have significant and far-reaching consequences that limit personal success and perpetuate power structures in and outside of the workplace.
Your 9AM is a resource that employees and managers can use to push for progress on their teams and throughout the office.
We're just getting started and I hope that you join us.
