Diversity: one of the key ingredients for a better and safer tomorrow

On one of the social media sites I come across a photo of two children.
With the caption:

“Humanity should be our race.
Love should be our religion.”

I’m looking at the children.
The clothes they wear indicate their vastly different cultures.
The color of their skin: one is dark, the other is light.
Yet they are so much alike: same wonder in their eyes, same innocence.

Diversity: embodied so beautifully by two children.
It’s one of the key ingredients for a better and safer tomorrow.

Throughout this month we’ll discuss diversity.
How it affects our interactions.

We’ll talk about the complexity of diversity.
And the impact it has on so many facets of our lives.

We’ll start with diversity in business.
A diverse workforce presents challenges as well as opportunities.
And we’ll continue with its many other “flavors”:
educated/less educated, old/young, black/white; the list goes on.

Diversity is a reality of our world. And we need to make it work.

Mariana Fieraru, an Eastern European transplant, fell in love with her new home shortly after landing in New York. She "discovered" pizza! Years later she still loves pizza. And so do her two feathered-kids, Sunny and Flipper

Mariana worked on both, the east and the west coast.
Big or small, each project she worked on helped define the importance of gaining and sustaining a competitive edge in an increasingly complex business environment.

Business know-how, love of teaching and writing – all combined in 2006 to form OBI.
Its mission: to make learning fun! And easy.

Through its training, consulting, and publications OBI builds bridges of knowledge to take you from where you are to
where you want to go. Using a mix of serious, informal, analytical, and optimistic approach, OBI truly makes learning fun.
