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.
