"Fairness has always been important to me, and I really don’t like the idea that any of my students feel less seen or heard or accepted than anyone else. This has led me to do a lot of self-reflection, attend conferences, read books, etc., which led me to want to be part of this group of like-minded people hoping we can work on these issues at our school. I enjoy the fact that these meetings allow me to interact with people from both campuses and all departments while sharing a common cause. The participants were all there for similar reasons, but there were individuals representing many cultures, religions, ethnicities, genders, orientations, departments, and ages. I came away feeling that I’m not alone in this work and that, while it will never be completed, each time we discuss and question things we move one step forward."
