Ruthless Equity Book by Ken Williams

While his style is inspirational and motivational, Ken is a status-quo disruptor, warm demander, and an unapologetic identifier of elephants in the room. His lens is firmly fixed on maximizing the collective strengths of educators in the service of high levels of learning for every student. When not working, Ken is often “running errands for no reason” in a 1975 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale convertible or a 1972 Buick Riviera. He’s an avid bowler, a lover of classic film, and old- school R&B and hip-hop music.

Ken also derives joy from creating memories with family and close friends. Ken was born in Brooklyn, raised in Queens, and currently lives in Atlanta, GA with his wife, Nicole, son, Adam, daughter, Mia, and damn dog, Murphy.
