100%. Our tagline, Humanizing Humanity, was built on DEI. Why is it so challenging for us celebrate and cherish our individual differences rather than be scared of them? The simple reason why we want everyone to be like us boils down to EGO. If you’re like me, then all of my fears, hopes, and dreams are validated and affirmed. If you’re not like me then I have to live with the uncomfortableness that I may be alone in what I think, see and feel. It’s in the uncomfortableness where the magic happens. You get to learn how to validate yourself while not in-validating others. Looking to surround ourselves with people who only see things the way we do is a recipe for stagnation. We only grow while in relationships with others who bump up against us.
We’re in this to grow right?
