George Floyd's death served as a wake-up call for all of us. It reminded us that, to be able to uphold the core values of diversity and inclusion, we need to recognize and speak out against racism and inequality. As coordinator of the DCR program I (Anja Rillcke) work with people from all four corners of the world. It was obvious to ask how they felt about what had happened in Minneapolis. Thus, I listened to their stories and today I feel very honoured to share the dialogue that evolved with DCR-Alumni Abiodun Adegbile. Take your time to read it. Abiodun's story might open your eyes and in the best of all cases your heart. Plus, he answers the question: ‘What can you do to make a change?’
