A single moment can spark a revolution, collective actions can transform laws, creative expression can change attitudes and an invention can alter the course of history. It’s these threads that weave together to propel a movement — even in the face of obstacles. TOGETHER is how we do it.
"Strength lies in differences, not in similarities."
What is diversity? Sometimes it’s what you see such as gender, skin color and physical abilities. But it can also be what you don’t see like religion, ethnicity, personality, beliefs and values. A person’s value is not related to their race, possessions, personal choices, financial standings or opinions. You are valuable because you are you.
And what really makes a ‘community’ is the fact that it values the dissimilarities in people. The idea of diversity encompasses acceptance and respect. It means understanding that each person is unique, and recognizing our individual differences. Our differences define us, allow us to make unique contributions to our group...to our society.
Now is the time to embrace this diversity. The message to spread love and understanding are more important than ever in our day and time. The history of intolerance is a long and brutal one where people who don’t fit a criteria and set of expectations are not treated the same.
We don’t need everyone to be the exact same carbon copy of one another. We should instead embrace and celebrate how special and different we already are. I look forward to the future of this group of women. I look forward to our future events. I look forward to us listening anf learning from one another. I look forward to seeing you.
big hugs to you all,
