Pro-active strategies employed by certain Canadian organizations are commendable in their journey towards inclusion of diversity. It is always the general attitude of the citizens of a community that has the ability to make or break the essence of positive change.
It is necessary that all stakeholders understand that a community progresses BECAUSE of diversity and not DESPITE of the differences between its citizens.
Diversity should be taken seriously, not just limited to rhetoric policies that are not enforced or monitored. Is you company/organization about lip service or serious about diversity?
Let’s embrace, practice and celebrate diversity!
