Diversity begins with understanding and knowing yourself. It is not that difficult. Knowing yourself includes recognizing and being comfortable in your ignorance. After that, you can begin to ask questions to learn about diverse cultures and peoples. These are steps anybody can take.
For example, as a black professional woman I am very comfortable in my ignorance towards the Latino community. Because I love to learn, I ask a lot of questions. Offenses may come when but at least I’m making progress.
Leaders embrace diversity, ask questions and are masters of making difficult things simple.
