A few items of interest:

* PARC has formed a national diversity, equity, and inclusion task team and is looking for interested individuals to be a part of the team.  See the attachment for more information.  If you’re interested in joining, please contact Neha Savant at diversity at parcplace.org<mailto:diversity at parcplace.org>
