How does your role support DEI at UMass Chan? “Supporting diversity, equity and inclusion requires a critical skillset built on constant learning, self reflection and integration into every part of our lives, both personal and professional. As I have grown as an educator, I have come to prioritize meeting people wherever they are in their learning journeys, learning from their experiences and perspectives, and then doing the work to challenge and support them in their development.”

What keeps you engaged in DEI work at UMass Chan? "Growing up in Portugal under a dictatorship, I had no power to influence or change people’s mindset or systems. The Diversity and Inclusion Office has allowed me to be part of a team that shares the same core values of equity, equal justice and opportunity for everyone. In my personal and professional life, I have influenced people through education and raised awareness about inequity and long for the day when systemic bias and oppression no longer exist."
