I have been at GAVS for 8 years and find it the most inclusive environment. The organization ensures that all are treated equally with respect, it does not speak much about its cherished values, but actions them beautifully. It reflects diversity and inclusiveness in an environment that is safe even, promoting different views and perspectives in an open, transparent and a rather unique system with an inherent sense of belonging.

The POSH committee helps recognize and address specific challenges and ensures that they are eliminated from the system. As Chairperson, I commit to purposeful and explicit action on conduct that is unwelcome and sexual in nature.
