"Evetty's strengths lie in (for lack of better words) doing something with diversity. Making a genuine impact by making equity real through intentional and strategic inclusion. Her strengths lie in her dedication to being a lifelong learner and then sharing and updating as she learns more. This is what will fundamentally make her impact more urgent, because it's coming from the best and most current research, practice, and experiences. It's driven by a unique curiosity and commitment."
