The work of inclusion and anti-racism requires sustained, proactive and intentional efforts at both the systemic and individual levels. All members of the community can engage in this effort by taking responsibility for their own learning. We encourage you to keep in mind that diversity education is not a singular step, but rather a lifelong process.
