"It’s about finding your values, and committing to them. It’s about finding your North Star. It’s about making choices. Some are easy. Some are hard. And some will make you question everything."
Tim Cook (1960-) is an American technology executive who has been the CEO of Apple since 2011.
In 2014, Cook became the first openly gay CEO of a Fortune 500 company - a pivotal moment for LGBTQ+ acceptance in the corporate world. “If hearing that the CEO of Apple is gay can help someone struggling to come to terms with who he or she is, or bring comfort to anyone who feels alone, or inspire people to insist on their equality, then it’s worth the trade-off with my own privacy," - said Cook.
Cook was named Person of the Year by the Financial Times in 2014, World's Greatest Leader by Fortune Magazine in 2015, received the Human Rights Campaign's Visibility Award (2015) and the Courage Against Hate award from Anti-Defamation League (2018).
