Discussion Post Instructions:
Please write a short post about your thoughts on the role statistics/statisticians play in discussions regarding diversity, inclusion, and equality.

In addition to your post, please read through the posts of your classmates and try to respond to at least one.
For full points on this assignment, I am looking for 1 post and 1 response from each of you.
