From here, with an increased awareness of self, our beliefs, our hopes, our dreams, and our fears, we can intentionally seek to connect with other humans beings that do not look or sound like us, or maybe come from a different location, department, demographic or just point of view
Until we love or even just plain like ourselves on a human level, from the inside out, there will no major progress with regards equity, inclusion maybe, but I sense less so equity.
The importance of reflective practice and an intentional focus on understanding your inner workings
Find and contribute to the community whether at work and/or outside. Find practice buddies to develop your vulnerability, listening, curiosity, and empathy muscle, we are ALL work in progress ALL of the time
Be courageous; in understanding yourself and seeking to understand others, especially those that do not look and sound like you
