In the July/August 2022 edition of SRQ Magazine, we interviewed Nelle S. Miller, Interim CEO at JFCS of the Suncoast as part of our In Conversation feature about nonprofit leaders. Below is an excerpt published in the magazine in which Miller shares her insights with SRQ readers on community growth and changes.

There have been a lot of physical changes in town over the years, but I think people are concerned about cultural change. Do you have thoughts that speak to that?

I think that there's been a community wide effort to really do the hard work on diversity, equity, and inclusion in acknowledgement of exactly this, that first of all, this community is diverse, but it hasn't necessarily melded the way it should. And secondly, as leadership in the community, I think a lot of us have acknowledged that we shouldn't be so arrogant to assume that we understand what other people want and need. So, whether it's the arts or the social services, or anything, we've, I think, begun to do a better job at bringing all voices to the table. So, I've seen a big change in that in the 20 years that I've been in Sarasota. I don't think we're there, I don't think we're even close to there, but I feel hopeful because I think a lot of us are doing the work.
