So if any of you, or anyone you know is willing to share an experience of theirs that highlights the serious need for increase of resources, please contact Christopher Hearn or Fernando Flores-Cabrera.
  2. Christopher Hearn, diversity director, is also trying to connect with each school and constituency to learn about their individual diversity initiatives/councils/positions, etc... and finding out if there's anything that needs to be done to help support or improve them. The initial email was sent out a week ago and only a small few have replied on behalf of their school or constituency. Please reach out to your school or constituency presidents and let them know to have the appropriate people reach out to Christopher.
