Why Equitas?

I am happy to be considered for a position on the Equitas board of directors. My interest in joining stems primarily from my strong belief in education as the most effective means of tackling issues of social justice in all spheres. As our world becomes increasingly polarized, finding constructive and collaborative paths to address the issues that we all face becomes even more important. I believe the values and approach of Equitas in achieving its objectives are ever more important.
