Diversity refers to the fact that we are all different. Even though people have many things in common diversity recognises that people also have a lot of differences. This can be differences in religion, age, gender, beliefs and many more things we come across in daily life.
Did the Age of Jim Crow ever end? Americans see “race” as a defined, indubitable feature of nature. Racism- the act of ascribing bone deep features to people to then humiliate, reduce, and destroy them- inevitably follows from this inalterable condition. White supremacist ideals, for instance, espouse unfounded ideas that revere the white man and scorn those of color, while also serving as a nonsensical justification for practices such as slavery, racial segregation, and Jim Crow. In “The Trouble with Diversity”, Walter Benn Michaels dismisses the concept and veracity behind race, as if it weren’t a societal issue worth addressing. To ignore the reality of race would be the equivalent of ignoring the plight and shared experiences of minority groups. “The Trouble with Diversity” insinuates that “diversity” is incompatible with the society we live in; this does not mean that people of color should have to encounter racial prejudices, whether in subtle or discernible ways.

Diversity is embedded in America’s DNA; this is best illustrated by the core message of our constitution. Though the founding fathers’ application of said document was woefully inadequate in terms of inclusion, and the United States has not always lived up to those grand ideas, we have steadily grown better at creating and inhabiting a more just and all-embracing society. Despite setbacks there is hope and progress. As diversity is the key issue of our, or any, time; we must continue seeking, promoting, and ensuring it progression. This is, in short, an imperative and enduring process.
There are many legislations relating to diversity, equality and discrimination, on October 2010, the Equality Act 2010 came into effect. This Act replaced previous legislations (such as the Race Relations Act 1976 and the Disability Discrimination Act 1995). This act ensures that people are protected from discrimination in the work place and in wider society.
I find that the concepts of diversity, inclusion and social justice to be important because they build on each other and have the power to change the world. When all of these aspects work together and are acknowledged then we are able to work toward changing social norms and creating aspects in society that are focused on equity, rather than equality. Of course, social justice should be the goal that we as individuals want to achieve in liberating areas of our that have limited and restrained others. I connect diversity and appreciating diversity with being the foundation to this equation of equality because individuals need to understand that there will be differences between people. I enjoy the statement on, “… Who is in the room?” because it starts to explain the variations in personal characteristics within a group of people. This is going to be part of my position as an RA within Resident Life because a floor’s residence are going to have wide range in their own diversities through their age, sexual orientation, journeys to get to college, race and ethnicity, etc. I am proud to have experienced the things I have and lived and go to high school in such a place like Aurora, CO to where I was able to live and embrace a diverse community. I came to define this diversity to be normal, but coming up to CSU and Fort Collins has shown me how much of Colorado does not have the same kind of standards. The next support beam to building this idea that works toward social would be
One action I will pursue to begin to seek familiarity with people with different backgrounds is by incorporating the knowledge I gained from the first four Ds during my interactions. I intend to begin striking up conversations with people of different backgrounds. I feel as though I can easily incorporate this into my daily life during lunch, when instead of sitting quietly and eating, I can speak to those sitting around me and enjoy the conversation that can ensue, keeping an open mind, as I enjoy my lunch. I feel as though I should naturally let the conversation flow, and let each encounter be unique, without using a preset script, or without trying to direct the conversation in a particular direction.
Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Quietly endure, silently suffer and patiently wait.” Belonging to a minority is such a unique and fascinating gift that should be cherished and embraced incessantly. I was born and raised in the state of Guanajuato in Mexico; I moved to the United States six years ago because my dad wanted my sisters and I to have a better quality of life and greater probabilities of attending college after high school. Because the first twelve years of my life I lived in a rural place lacking diversity, moving to such a diverse country resulted in a major culture shock for me.
It was the great Mahatma Gandhi who said, “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” Thus, serving as an Advisory Board member would give me an incredible opportunity to continue rising up and reaching back to my community. I would be able first, join in the conversation because I was once told “alone we are strong but as a team we are stronger”. Secondly, it would give me the favorable pleasure of brainstorming with elite diversity champions to come up with suitable ways to reinforce the importance of diversity and inclusion. I am extremely excited and looking forward to being a part of ADCOLOR Advisory Board, which will be a major steppingstone in achieving one of my life’s goals, and I believe that my passion,

Hello my name is Callum and I believe that all students, regardless of race, religion, sexuality or situation, should access the same platform for success at college. For this reason, I am running for Equality and Diversity Officer for 2015/16. If I am elected in to this position, I would like to work closely with the LGBT Executive officer, Welfare Executive officer, Women’s Executive officer, Ethnic Executive Officer, Youth Officer and mature Officer to gather any concerns or issues that the group they represent have and see what I can do to resolve these concerns or issues. I would also like to set up a Drop in session where any student can come to me directly to voice any concerns that they have so I can help them with this or pass them
Militaries all over the world have historically faced problems with diversity, inclusion, and equality within their ranks. The hyper-masculine culture that has been at the core of many military values has facilitated a perspective that excludes certain populations. Women of all backgrounds as well as gay men have struggled through the years for their right to service. This essay serves to explore the struggles as well as progress the Australian Defense Force has facilitated with its LGBTQ officers, and to analyze the current state of equality and inclusion that the ADF has to offer.
