“I like to think of DE&I as a marathon and we are not even at the halfway point yet. We cannot give into DE&I fatigue. This work matters. Take a break if you need to but don’t give up on the marathon. We have so much more to do toward making our industry widely inclusive, safe, and equitable for current and future underrepresented groups.”

Charles, his husband Travis, and their dog Bear live in Southern California.

Link USA is currently forming in-person chapters within major U.S. cities. If you would like to get involved please email Charles at USCommittee@LGBTinsuranceNetwork.com and for more information about Link their web address is https://www.lgbtinsurancenetwork.com/
