Within academic circles, it is widely accepted that diverse perspectives contribute to a broad knowledge-base in the field, which results in innovative ways forward. The articles in this Special Issue are exemplary of this idea, as each casts light on previously shadowed areas of exploration. Importantly, each article is grounded in personal experience with a focus on supporting the community. This commitment and success in conducting such rewarding research is astonishing given the challenges newcomer scholars can face in academia, as noted by Lena, the lead editor for the Special Issue, in her introduction. We, Maisha and Jon, would like to thank the authors and Lena for their generosity in sharing their experiences and research in service of moving their respective conversations.
