Thanks to The Temple News for spotlighting me as the inaugural Nursing for Women's Health associate editor and my passion for diversifying nursing. I have been a member of the AWHONN - The Association of Women's Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses for 14 years. During that time, I’ve been on numerous committees and held lots of leadership positions. I love AWHONN to my core. It's my professional home. Shining a visible light on the need for increased diversity in nursing leadership positions part of my mission. It is a joy to be a part of the solution in general areas of maternal-child health and within AWHONN specifically. I want nurses to do better because we know better. Gone are the days of tolerating racial prejudice directly as perpetrators of racism or indirectly as silent bystanders. We are better than that. We must DO better than that. I do this work for the communities I serve and the nurses of color who will come after me. It's time to increase #NursingDEI...
