D&I is important to me becauseI come from a dual heritage background (Trinidadian and Scottish) and grew up in an extremely white community where my family and I were often subject to questionable language and treatment. 

We were brought up in a way to celebrate our heritage and educate others about it, so from that standpoint I've always been passionate about helping others to celebrate & understand different backgrounds. At the point of history that we are in now, I think we all believe that we are forward thinking and inclusive - but there is always more to be done, that needs to be focused on for the right reasons, rather than to just tick a box.I believe that we are definitely in a new civil rights era, so it’s a priority to focus on practicing D&I in the workplace.
