I'm the proverbial 'straight white cisgendered male' (and you can add middle-class to that as well), but becoming disabled, and then being forced out of the industry over it, by a multinational that has the nerve to claim it's a leader on diversity and equality, served as a real eye opener as to the reality many people face from day one.

I'm still comparatively new here at DW, but one of the things I'm absolutely delighted at is the diverse set of people I've met (and all the stuff I'm learning as a result), and how safe an environment it is.

Both of which mean I think that's a great cause to be donating to, keep up the good works!
