inclusion; her famous mantra being, "We go together, or
not at all."
"The diversity I would like to create is one of heart, one of love, one of healing, one of togetherness - not one of separation, nor anger, hatred, accusation and wagging of the finger. The work I do is all about that collective. It’s that understanding that diversity isn’t just about colour for a lot of us. I believe this Wales Online Diversity and Inclusion Awards embodies that spirit and so I am very proud to be a Sponsor."
