As we reflect on #BlackHistoryMonth and our cornerstone values, we recognize that a diversity of experiences and backgrounds are key to our shared success. Thank you to leaders of @NCSUWomensCtr, @ncsuaacc, & Black Male Initiative who shared perspectives!

We had a packed last day in London! Half of us visited the @zsllondonzoo and got a behind the scenes tour from alumna Dr. Guthrie. Others visited @RCT Windsor Castle and then we wrapped at @TheLondonEye with gorgeous views. It has been a life changing and transformative week!

Today we had the incredible opportunity to visit @UKParliament and meet Lord Chris Smith, MP for 22 yrs and the person responsible for making museums free for all. He was the first MP to come out as gay in 1984. It was a privilege and honor to spend time with him. #SheltonAbroad
