Creating an equity focused culture that solicits and values the talents and contributions of all people and that celebrates diversity across identity and circumstances requires that we examine ourselves through an equity lens that seeks to expose and eliminate both the known and “hidden in plain sight”, structural inequities that persist in all institutions, including ours. It is not lofty platitudes on a wall. It is action – because action is the only thing that will lead to meaningful change and a lasting impact.
