  1. Listening and Learning: Diversity is so much more than just racial and ethnic diversity. There are so many more layers and dimensions. It’s complex and wonderful all at the same time. By listening to others, you can create growth.
  2. Take Action: Think about the things you can do in your everyday life to create change in the DE&I arena. Mentor someone, empower people, volunteer, lift others up, and be the positive change you want to see.
  3. Be Consistent: Human and civil rights are lifelong fights. There has never been a point in history where society has been truly inclusive. When I was 22, I had a conversation with our CEO as an entry level employee. I shared my thoughts and ideas with him, which is something that a young Black professional would’ve never been able to do years ago. Consistent conversations and contributions to society will help push us even closer to a truly inclusive world.
  4. Be Compassionate: Work in the DE&I space can be hard and emotionally taxing. So, lead with compassion. Be open to learning from your mistakes, and understand that compassion will create change.
