Diversity is a tough word, I think we all have a general sense of what that word means, but in terms of how I approach it on a day to day basis is that's an end goal. That's what I want to get to. Inclusion is the way that I get there. — Sameera Kapila
Diversity doesn't just apply to women, it just does not apply to people of color, it also applies to people who have disabilities or abilities or are older. — Sameera Kapila
