Community Embrace Diversity

Notes & Ideas

  • More open

  • Ask the student

  • The human condition. Our common experience

  • Diversity is strength, survival, ideas, success

  • More ways of knowing: spread the positive message: diversity is not a threat: it is an opportunity/ celebrate it. Value it. Goes beyond employment buzzwords even employable skills. Core value of who we are. NL needs this.

  • Indigenous languages - many of them.

  • Time passes, change will happen. Focus on positive enriches us.

Questions

  • How do we deal with fear of change?

  • How do we move away from “tolerate” and toward embrace diversity and value?

  • What should be done about hate on social media?

  • Emphasize the real rtn: more weight.

Actions

  • We are diverse so show the value of diversity

  • Include the richness we already have as early as possible
