Why diversity matters: When I think of diversity, it’s not about gender, it’s about celebrating difference and the power of difference. What I love about RARE, is that it advances that difference and recognises that everyone needs a chance, and it’s the combination of those very differences that drives big ideas and a diverse society forward together.
