Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Interview

We’re all trying to work towards a goal and we need each other to do it… if we try to isolate ourselves we’re not going to be successful.

Originally from a small manufacturing town in southern Missouri, Kevin’s first major experience with diversity came when he moved away from home for college. With the enrichment of diversity in college dorm life, as well as a wealth of wisdom passed on from his father, Kevin was able to grow immensely and continued to expand his horizons by working at 13 different Saint Louis area organizations. Since then, Kevin has brought his wealth of knowledge, experience, and leadership skills to WashU, where he has served for 13 years. Through his unique experiences, international travel through various organizations, and collaboration with workers of various cultures, Kevin has developed a deeper understanding and value of the different perspectives diverse groups bring.
