What trigger the question is that many candidates mentioned inclusiveness and
diversity in their candidacies. Since it's a topic that I believe is sensitive
and vibrant in our industry, I felt it was fair to dive into it further before
the voting period. It definitely influenced the way I voted.

This said, I agree we should have this kind of discussions more often than not
and I intend to pursue this topic further.
