For my last Presidential Editorial, I will reflect on the past year. When my presidency started in a global pandemic, I did not think it would end in the pandemic. There is hope for a post-COVID-19 pandemic world. I am also hopeful for our Society’s bright future.
My SNEB editorial, Forging the Future of Food and Nutrition Education,1 discussed the importance equity at the core of our field and SNEB.
I, along with the rest of the Board of Directors (BOD), dedicated ourselves to that goal. At our BOD meeting preceding the 2020 Annual Conference, we invited two experts, Dr Joanne Burke and Dr Karen Spiller to facilitate our equity journey. Our first activity was to place SNEB on a continuum for becoming an anti-racist, multicultural institution.2 Our discussion on potential changes to become more anti-racist included hosting more conversations about racism that are open to our entire community.
