As conveners, disrupters, and educators, you are leading, intentionally or not, an increasingly vital role in engaging this diversity by creating encounters and experiences that lead to cooperation instead of conflict, love in response to hate, and a more understanding and open mindset. We all need to hold ourselves accountable for this, not only in the academy, but in every aspect of our lives.
