There is an emerging need of encouraging diversity in every aspect of life whether it is work or academics. Luckily, today’s youth is aware and contributing to addressing and eliminating the issues regarding diversity such as inequality and discrimination. The youth has been urging America to open its eyes to the lack of diversity in the professional world. As a result of this, a huge push to expand diversity and representation in the entertainment industry has been seen. Besides workplaces, our educators and teachers also lack diversity. The interesting fact is that the legal field remains one of the least diverse of any profession according to a survey.
