This piece is part of a series under the theme of “Elevating Underrepresented Voices at ANDE.” As part of ANDE’s ongoing work in diversity, equity, and inclusion, and acknowledging our platform as a global organization, we have extended an invitation to all staff to express their own reflections on the subject. As our diversity task force chairs noted in their introduction to the series, “The articles included in this series come from ANDE staff and are not part of an editorial strategy, but rather an organic initiative led by individuals who want to contribute their unique perspectives to our collective understanding of important diversity-related topics.” We hope they prompt reflection and conversation.
