    Too often, people avoid difficult conversations. But these discussions often need to happen to move forward. There’s no denying that our workplaces are more diverse than ever. Age, race, gender – there are so many different perspectives and experiences being brought to the table. And the best employees and leaders know that harnessing the power of these differences will build stronger teams, ideas, and organizations. But how do we do this? If we all think, feel, and act so differently, how do we get anything done?
    The first step is recognizing that these differences exist. And that they’re here to stay. We
    need to respect and embrace our varied viewpoints, and then we can start to communicate across (not against) them.



    1. Recognize and begin to accept their own biases and preferences.  

    2.Increase their comfort level when sharing their personal preferences and experiences

    3.Define diversity, inclusion, and belonging and brainstorm strategies to create a more inclusive workplace.
