Something that is finally becoming a more common conversation, thank goodness, is diversity and inclusion. Our world has a sad history as it relates to persecuted and oppressed people, and even though it might not seem like it I do think we’re slowly making progress. To best understand the dynamics at play, and how we can respectfully and responsibly exist within them, we need to generate a new awareness. This is something Jimi Vaughn articulates incredibly well.
When it comes to diversity and inclusion, we need to get in the habit of being critical about our environment. We need to be intentional about inviting people and groups who are underrepresented to participate so that all voices are heard. I’m challenging myself to be extra aware of this, and I encourage you to do the same!
