DEI Contribution/Highlight: Here at Taubman College, I help to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion by embracing differences, proactively including others, maintaining self-awareness of my own bias, being my authentic self, and holding others accountable to do the same.

Why is diversity, equity, and inclusion important to you? Diversity, equity and inclusion is important because it enables everyone to reach their highest potential; It’s so intriguing and inspiring because it shows how brilliantly unique we are and yet the same in our essence.
