Diversity and inclusion have always been an integral part of the culture I wanted to build at Delvinia. To do this, we believe in continuously educating each other about our different cultures and perspectives.

February marks Black History Month.  We have the pleasure of having people from our team in both the US and Canada that are celebrating Black History Month and I asked a couple of them to share their perspective and importance of taking time to celebrate their Black History.

This week, our Managing Director in the US, Kwami Lewis, accepted my request to share his knowledge about Black History Month with our Delvinia team.  The only direction I gave him was to share it from his point of view.  He not only achieved that, but he brought a lot of people to tears with his story.  So much so, I felt that we should share his story with others.

I hope you enjoy his story and perspective on what Black History Month means to him.
