Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion 

How do we change what we don’t know about ourselves and change our current behaviors that we believe to be helpful? The conversations and the work that we are doing is just the beginning.

Please don’t stop at “learning” and please start doing the work. It’s time. We at H&V will be a brave space and safe community for each of us to do the work on bias and learn about privilege while expanding our understanding of ally, empowerment, institutional bias, microaggression and other terms that we may have wondered about. From there the work and actions that need to be taken will emerge for individuals and Chapters.
