The chapter seeks to achieve a broad representation of experiences, perspectives, and cultures to ensure that the best possible thinking, ideas, opportunities, and solutions are considered. We strive to intentionally create a respectful and welcoming environment that is open to all, and appreciate the unique contributions of every member of our community.
