Political commentator and human rights advocate Van Jones says the ability to embrace diversity, equity and inclusion is a superpower, and the people who have it will be better poised for success. Jones, CEO of the REFORM Alliance and host of “Redemption Project” and “The Van Jones Show” on CNN, was the keynote speaker Oct. 7 at a community assembly kicking off the University of Michigan’s monthlong DEI Summit.

The summit features workshops and panels that highlight the university’s commitment to fostering a welcoming, diverse and inclusive environment.

Speaking to a crowd of several hundred people at Hill Auditorium, Jones stressed the importance of working together with people who have varied backgrounds and views.
