My name is Lawrence from team 1529 and just here recently I’ve been put in charge of a diversity subgroup for our team. I’m a fully out transboy on the team and my job is to make sure everyone feels safe to be themselves. I just wanted to share that.
Hello, fellow dude! It’s so awesome that you have a diversity subgroup. If you ever want to share any of your work with the blog, just submit it (with consent from your team, of course) and we’d be happy to spread some cool diversity to other FIRSTers out there!
