Dear NCAA Brain Tattoo Experience Participants,
From our very first interaction in preparation for the 2023 Inclusion Forum, it was clear and evident that your efforts to build a community of belonging are not only sincere but fervent. It was an honor for Dear World to be a part of your work in bringing to the forefront the important narratives of athletes and administrators from all walks of life. Storytelling is a powerful tool that has the potential to not only celebrate individual narratives but also bring teams together. Not unlike our work with Duke’s men’s basketball team in 2015, the power of Dear World’s methodology is an untapped resource for college athletics. Moreover, the 2023 Inclusion Forum was a success because of the hard work and dedication of the NCAA staff and Dear World is proud to have played a role in this important event. As a storyteller, it is always an honor to hear and archive your stories, especially for organizations like the NCAA. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for having us.
