"We need more diversity and inclusion in every area of life - creating content, commercials, video games, technology, web and mobile apps, etc. Things we consume and utilize everyday to learn about the world, communicate with loved ones, and self actualize.

This is why it's crucial to spread awareness on organizations that are helping women and our focus should not waver when it comes to pushing for diversity and inclusion." - R.E.
