"We use the word 'diverse' when we really mean people of color, or specifically Black, Asian, Indigenous or Latinx. The problem with that is we are all diverse, so when we say we are focused on 'diversity,' that means everyone.
It doesn't lend itself to changing our practices to have different, more inclusive outcomes."
