Diversity & Inclusion
Diversity and inclusion, to me, are about the redistribution of power, an inseparable part of social justice and equity, and central to the way I see the world and the changes I want to drive.
You can find my diversity and inclusion statement here.
Examples of my work related to diversity and inclusion in higher education and construction industry are listed below,
