Commitment to Diversity.

I am dedicated to promoting diversity:

  • I aim to speak only at events with diverse speakers.
  • I’m always ready to recommend diverse speakers from my extensive contacts.
  • I’m consciously stepping back from CLE speaking and multi-member panels to open doors for younger and diverse speakers.
