Why DEI? I grew up watching Sesame Street and Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood. I grew up learning that everyone is special and should be loved for who they are and treated with respect. I think as adults, we sometimes forget these important lessons we learned in childhood. Diversity, equity, and inclusion matters to me because  The Diversity Movement engages with people in their place of work—we are hopefully changing their perspectives and behavior. And then these people can share their new perspectives and behaviors with their families, their friends, and their communities. Hopefully, we will be able to achieve the world that Sesame Street and Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood taught me about as a child.
