Thank you for your excellent post, Matthew! Your blog did an excellent job communicating and building on the ideas presented by Dr. Joneja in our discussion.

Dr. Joneja’s presentation and discussion that followed highlighted the role of institutions in leading the development towards a more equitable and inclusive society. In addition, Dr. Joneja articulated the importance of engaging in difficult conversations in order to hold individuals and institutions to account. By continuing these conversations into the future we can learn more about the barriers experienced by marginalized groups and in doing so, work towards creating a more inclusive environment.

As Matthew mentioned, although imperfect, the increase in media coverage and public awareness regarding racial inequities is an encouraging first step towards a more equitable society. However, Dr. Joneja stated in her presentation, it is important to be mindful that the issues raised will take time and persistence to change. As a result, we all must remain committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion in order to see meaningful change in the future.
