Leading the Charge for the World You Deserve

Many in your class will have the option to join the ranks of the most privileged and powerful. But you also have the option to take another road, to challenge that world of power and privilege, and to transform it.


Expanding the Diversity Conversation

Not every series of initiatives can be harmonious. This is in no small part because identities will clash, as this year’s controversies have shown.
