Overview

Diversity and inclusivity are relevant and timely subjects of discussion, especially as it pertains to the workplace. Since our practices are linked (socially, politically, ethically and culturally) to our lives, not independent of it, the ethos we adopt can break or shape the world in which we and others live.

Finding the answers to the sociocultural concerns of humanity might be found in the principles of diversity and inclusivity. In contrast, The exclusion of diversity often reduces humanity to its narrowest limits. Yet, the hope and most significant gift of its adoption can change unilateral thinking, challenge institutional paradigms or redefine societal and cultural staid conventions.
