Diversity to me is about embracing our differences as humans and actively creating an environment for acceptance and respect. I think diversity means that you’re being inclusive of people from different backgrounds. Diversity is important to me because I love interacting and learning from people from all different walks of life and an understanding people. You have to understand where they come from and through diversity of background. That’s how you get to understand what people are, where they’ve been.
Impact emphasized diversity by literally every single person that works here. If you look around different dynamic groups of ages obviously male, female, different cultures, different backgrounds, different educations. When I started, it was made out I can I could be whoever I want. Um, I can express my feelings. There’s always an open door.
I think impact embraces diversity by giving everyone an equal chance. If you work hard, then you’re rewarded, no matter your background. But I read this article recently that Generation Z, which is, you know, generation after after the millennials. That they’re growing up in such a diverse environment. That they’re not doesn’t even faze them anymore. There’s been an African American president. There’s women in leadership positions too, it’s just completely normal, and I think that’s been the greatest improvement we’ve had since the previous generations.
