DEI Contribution/Highlight: As a member of the LunchUP Planning Committee, I help organize weekly Urban Planning-related lectures from professionals who represent diverse backgrounds and ideas.

Why is diversity, equity, and inclusion important to you? Each of us have unique experiences and identities that shape our perspective of the world. When we acknowledge and represent this diversity within our built environment, we create communities that are more sustainable and equitable for everyone.
