DEI Contribution/Highlight: For me, the best way I can help others is by being kind to everyone! Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are all skills we must develop through daily practice. It takes time and patience to unlearn some of our patterned behaviors so I strive to be kind to others every day.
Why is diversity, equity, and inclusion important to you? I think every person deserves equal access to opportunity.
