The world is a beautiful place when we learn to appreciate each other’s uniqueness and embrace diversity. No matter a person’s background, a person should be acknowledged for their differences – ethnic, cultural, personal. Research has even shown that more diversity means more success.
Diversity evokes innovation and creativity. When people from different backgrounds come together to tackle a problem, the solution is reached in a faster and more efficient way. People coining their own individual thought and creativity allows for new development and new ideas to be birthed. When we hear different approaches, it allows us to individually think outside of the box and more broadly. We are able to come up with ideas that we ourselves could not have come up with on our own. It opens our minds to more opportunities.
It is important to have empathy and awareness. Everyone is unique in their own way. Each person has their own story, their own unique background, so we must have empathy amongst each other, appreciating each person’s experience. We have to be open to new ways of thinking to progress as a society. When we are diverse as a community, we flourish and make amazing innovations and advancements.
