Black History Month and Strengthening Diversity
February notes the beginning of Black History Month which has historically been a time to disrupt the traditional ways in which stories are told about our past. It has also been a time when people are challenged to look beyond their assumptions and learn something new. In schools, teachers have the opportunity to focus on the diversity that is often overlooked in the normal curriculum. In many companies, executive leaders have an opportunity to recognize the different experiences that team members bring when they are encouraged to share more about their culture, their practices, and their experiences as a person of color.
Black History Month gives us a moment to pause and appreciate how our diversity has built, strengthened, and continues to improve our communities and our countries. There is a genuine gift that comes when we value our differences and strive towards unity. Diversity goes beyond the color of our skin and the culture we come from. Diversity can also come in the way we see the world, which is our temperament. Understanding our temperament can be an important means for improving our sensitivities when we are communicating, guiding, and inspiring others to be their best for the greater good.
