DEI goes beyond the workplace - and it goes beyond just fairness - it's about making sure everyone has the best platform for their voice. We need to make sure there's balanced representation at the table. It's about embracing unique journeys and working to accept others stories as they are. It's about lifting each other up. Sometimes, that requires the privileged to break their idea of stereotypes and, at times, to maybe feel a bit uncomfortable, but know that there's no reason to feel threatened at the livelihood of others. WE build each other up and WE make each other stronger.
