Why is it important to support diversity and inclusion?
"Promoting diversity, and enabling fair opportunities for everyone, unites people with varied skills from different backgrounds, attitudes and experiences. It also encourages diversity of thought and perceptions. It is important that we are all able to pursue our dreams irrespective of who we are. It is crucial that future generations can see people ahead of them, who look like them, so they can also aspire for greatness".
