Contribution to a more inclusive language: It is important to me to support the work already done by my colleagues in the LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC community; to learn from it; to build on it and to make it visible. I have seen the need to push for a deeper discussion about diversity and racism prevention in communication work and to raise the discussion to another, higher level. So that it doesn't just remain a discussion, but that there are also trainings, handouts and guidelines. Now I am happy that my ideas have been taken up in the network.

I was incredibly lucky and humbled to have had the opportunity to help translate Dr. Onaje Woodbine's work to an online space.

For this article, I was responsible for the design and art direction of the article, creating an interactive experience which paid homage to Dr. Woodbine's ritual, building the final article with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and working with illustrators and sound artists to create the final assets.

Academics for Black Lives training

Attended a week long training on my own time to understand and listen to Black experiences in academia so I can become a better ally to my students and colleagues. The training is incredibly well organized and written, and I would recommend it to absolutely everyone.

DE&I Working Group

Worked with a coworker and senior leadership to establish a Diversity, Equity & Inclusion working group for our department, and stepped back to allow other voices to speak and lead once the group was established.
