Why DEI?: A quote I live by is “Be the change, you wish to see in the world” by Mahatma Gandhi. I want the world to be inclusive regardless of age, disability, gender expression, or gender identity. So, I chose to work for an organization that shares the same values as me and wants to make positive changes in the world.
