Celebrate Diversity Month
April is Celebrate Diversity Month, started in 2004 to recognize and honor the diversity surrounding us all. By celebrating differences and similarities during this month, we hope that people will get a deeper understanding of each other. There are plenty of ways to celebrate diversity in everyday situations such as:
- Read a book or see a movie containing multicultural perspectives.
- Listen to different types of cultural music.
- Try a food from a different culture that you’ve never tasted before.

Touchstones in Focus: Listen
We will focus on one of the WICT Touchstones of Leadership each month, which serve as our compass along the path of strategic and effective leadership development.
Our focus this month is LISTEN. Most of us think that listening is a passive activity. It’s not. It’s an intentional act to commit to be a better and mindful listener. In addition to being an active listener, try to listen with more than just your ears and to be present when you’re listening. As we Celebrate Diversity Month, try to also look through others’ lenses and LISTEN with your heart to learn from people’s unique stories and gain new narratives to rise and develop professionally and personally.
