Diversity Is The Application of Democracy
It encompasses acceptance and respect; understanding that each individual and their cultural map is unique, and accounts for individual experiences, differences and similarities along the dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs, or other ideologies.
Diversity is about understanding each other and moving beyond simple tolerance to embracing and celebrating the rich dimensions of diversity and our common heritage. The exploration of these differences and similarities are best explored in a safe, positive, and nurturing environment as for some diversity exploration and validation can be uneasy
One’s cultural walk can resemble a road paved with speed bumps, distractions and mixed messages, written in many languages, spoken, and non-verbal, as well as one that values and affirms the goodness of all humankind. For the greatest impact and resolve, one’s cultural walk should be explored with seasoned trainers.
