Focus of the Month – Diversity
We are a diverse workforce in a variety of ways. We are different ages, different cultures, different genders, have different beliefs; and I could go on and on.
What is great about diversity is it adds colour to our world. It makes us appreciate that when we add all of our differences together they can brighten our world, if we accept them all. That can also be challenge, as accepting differences is sometimes an area we can struggle with.
As we approach Harmony Day on the 21st March, please think about how you can embrace difference. Unlike the autumn leaves that have their own journey, we can control ours to understand how differences can brighten our world, if we let them.
Everyone has a part to play – all the time, everywhere. Whilst the day is a day of celebration and highlighting the theme, the theme runs all year.
From grassroots activism to worldwide action, we are entering an exciting period of history where the world expects balance. We notice its absence and celebrate its presence.
