Getting curious about that which is different, learning from and listening to the experiences of others who hold different identities, acquiring strategies for cultivating an inclusive community - these actions can bring about limitless opportunities for connection, collaboration, and innovation.
We tend to resist that which we don’t immediately relate to… in other words, that which is different. When it comes to other people, if unchecked, the fear and resistance can all too easily dictate how we relate to others who hold different histories, worldviews, and identities than ours.
The result? More often than not this leads to apathy, misunderstandings, avoidance, and sometimes conflict.
We all have something to learn when it comes to engaging difference, recognizing points of connection, and welcoming the diversity of others.
The learning can take many forms both in everyday life, often spontaneously, and in more formal, deliberate settings such as workshops, seminars, and trainings.
No matter the platform, I have found that the best learning happens when we are open and active participants in the process, when we are in supportive environments, and when we have opportunities to ask questions, dig deeper, and explore difficult topics.
