Philip McAdoo has a deep commitment to working within the diversity field. The power of his approach is that he is concerned and focused on the individual and the experience of said individual. I have grown and learned about myself and the world through our numerous collaborations
Philip McAdoo and his son Zaden from Atlanta--came to Washington, DC to highlight how essential a loving home can be to a child in need of support and understanding. Philip, his partner Sean Cavanaugh, and Zaden are a beautiful, loving, globe-trotting family; simply being with them just warms your heart. Their story is the happy ending which every foster care youth and potential parent should have the opportunity to experience.
Philip McAdoo's diversity leadership was impressive to witness. I appreciate the opportunity to be a part of this much-needed dialogue around LGBTQ issues and diversity
