THG Thankful Thursday!
This week, we are thankful for diversity!
Merriam Webster Dictionary defines diversity as:
- The condition of having or being composed of differing elements: Variety, especially: the inclusion of different types of people (such as people of different races or cultures) in a group or organization i.e. programs intended to promote diversity in schools
- an instance of being composed of differing elements or qualities: an instance of being diverse i.e. diversity of opinion
This word is often tossed out as a buzzword for workplaces, communities, schools and civic groups. But why is it important?
