"To cultivate a community representing a wide variety of individuals at all levels, all of whom respect, honor and celebrate the broad range of human differences among us, while also embracing the commonalities we share, and to provide each individual with the opportunity to achieve his or her full potential while pursuing their goals."

As a mom, this story about Mark's daughter's pre-school experience really touched me. The activity "We are all the same on the inside” is so powerful and is a great message for ALL ages. Perhaps corporate America could weave this activity into their diversity trainings, too!

And because diversity is, well, so diverse, Mark also has a section called Think Before You Speak and advises on what NOT to say to veterans. We all have good intentions but sometimes we say the wrong thing, self included.
