October is Diversity Awareness Month.
I was fascinated to read that Carole Copeland Thomas, MBA, founded Diversity Awareness Month in
October of 2006.
The following is Carole’s definition of diversity:
“Diversity is understanding, appreciating, and ultimately managing difference and similarities at the same time.
Its reach is all-inclusive and may represent categories such as: Class, Race, Gender, Age, Religion, Sexual Orientation, Physical Disabilities, Nationalities, Political Beliefs and others. To achieve its maximum effectiveness, diversity requires:
1. Your Personal Examination
2. Your Individual Commitment
3. Your Own Curiosity
4. A Continuous Learning Effort”
Carole’s definition of diversity is complimentary to the What Color Is Your Brain? approach for appreciating the diversity of our Brain Color personalities.
1. Saying “Please” and “Thank you”
2. Recognition of their accomplishments
3. Reaching their goals
5. Financial compensation
6. Follow through on projects
7. Honesty in relationships
8. Reliability to get a job done well
9. Respect for their dependability and stability
Carole, “Thank You!” for creating a celebration to
acknowledge and honor our unique attributes and abilities!
