DA is a resource for students connecting them with programs around the globe as well as a consortium of universities and providers helping professionals deploy diversity inclusion initiatives in the fabric of their offices and organizations. Andrew is an amazing friend, someone I go to for entrepreneurial, professionals, and even relationship advice. ;) If you don’t know if already, I’m so happy to introduce you.
