Why is diversity, equity, and inclusion important to you? Though I’m a member of student groups centered on issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion, where I’m in the role of ally (I am not disabled, I am not a minority), I have witnessed others being treated unequally time and time again. I feel it’s important to support and lift those who are not in a position of privilege, or nothing will ever change.
