As humans, we are tribal by nature so we want to gravitate towards what we understand and what is familiar.
We fear what we don’t understand because a lack of understanding represents a lack of control.
There is nothing necessarily wrong with similarities though but I want to encourage you all to reflect on how you react to differences.
Do you avoid them or make an effort to understand them?
I think if you make an effort to understand them, you’ll find that we have a lot more in common than we initially think.
Diversity to me is much more than the color of our skin, our age, gender or affiliations. It’s also about the inside.
Essentially, true diversity is being able to connect the visible to the invisible.
How will you connect the visible to the invisible today?
When you don’t see something or experience something, it’s hard for you to acknowledge there’s a problem so awareness is key.
