With February comes Black History Month and I am going to be sharing some facts about Black History Month and famous Black people in history.
Did you know that every year Black History Month is given a theme? The theme for 2021 is ‘The Black Family: Representation, Identity, and Diversity.
I had planned on using this term for some time now, but with it tying in with this months theme, there was no better time than the present. Diversity is a term that we are hearing more and more within business and society as a whole.
The definition of Diversity is
1. The state of being diverse; variety.
2. The practice or quality of including or involving people from a range of different social and ethnic backgrounds and of different genders, etc.
This is so important in business because it brings in new ideas and experiences, and people can learn from each other. Bringing in different ideas and perspectives leads to better problem-solving. Working in diverse teams opens dialogue and promotes creativity.
