In an increasingly abrasive and polarized U.S. society, we believe ... in helping people develop a more thoughtful understanding of diversity and group interaction, better prepare to critically evaluate inequitable social patterns and institutions, and find ways to work in coalition with diverse others to create more socially just and inclusive relationships, practices, and social structures.

Truth be told, most line managers see diversity and inclusion as an "HR issue" or, better yet, a "diversity and inclusion officer's responsibility." We must stop recognizing and rewarding people for simply making progress. It's too easy for organizations to receive awards and recognition for doing things that look good to the outside world but do little to actually move the needle. Rather, let's reward results. Let's reward equality. Trudy Bourgeois, Courageous Conversations About Women, Men, and Race to Spark a Diversity and Inclusion Breakthrough

I heard a wise speaker on diversity once say that "if you have a brain, you have biases." The answer to this is not whether we have them or not, but what we do with them. Do we need to act on everything we think or feel? Of course not. We have that evolved frontal lobe to help us cope with the uncomfortable or different. Deborah Cake Fortin; John Gregory Vincent, Diversity and Inclusion The Submarine Way: What Life Underwater Taught Me About Inclusion

Words of Encouragement  |



... You cannot help small men by tearing down big men.  William Boetcker
"You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot help small men by tearing down big men. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot lift the wage-earner by pulling down the wage-payer. You cannot help the poor man by destroying the rich. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot establish security on borrowed money. You cannot build character and courage by taking away men's initiative and independence. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves." William Boetcker

Motivational Poems   |



"A human being is a part of the whole that we call the universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest -- a kind of optical illusion of his consciousness. This illusion is a prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for only the few people nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living beings and all of nature." Albert Einstein
