Global Diversity Month


October is Global Diversity Awareness Month and National Today does a great job of capturing the importance and meaning of this celebration; highlighting it as a way to “pay tribute to the diverse minds and beliefs held by all cultures around the world.” National Today goes on to say, “We live in a multicultural society and embracing the values of various cultures only strengthens our understanding and appreciation of the world. Open your mind to new views and ideas, appreciate cultural differences, and enjoy a fresh perspective you may have been missing. It helps you become a true citizen of the world.”
