So, ERGs are new to me; it's a new concept, but it makes... I've never been involved in that sort of thing before, but it makes perfect sense because here we are, we're in this huge organization, and an organization is nothing without its employees, and we can get together, even though the University of Maryland is enormous, we can get together and work with people that we'd never normally even meet. And it makes perfect sense to be able to get together in that way to make a difference, particularly when we're focusing on inequality and injustice. I think that's something that we all should be involved in and empowered to do something about.
