“My role as a DEI Ambassador has been eye opening and comforting. I didn't think it would be so necessary to be in a room with empowered women who are willing to engage in difficult conversations. It's refreshing to see and interact with people who are looking to spread understanding, love, and justice.” - Yenny Tavarez
