CreativeMornings KL with Ivy Tan
We strive to embrace diversity and inclusion in our daily lives. Little did we know, we often fail to understand how it works and the difference between both. When we promote diversity, do we also practice inclusiveness? How do we become inclusive? Without psychological safety, it can be challenging for an individual, organization and the community to reflect true inclusive culture.
Humility helps to avoid judging difference as inferior. Compassion enables us to appreciate people who challenges our beliefs and values while veracity continues to question assumptions which can guide us to objectivity. How does one then becomes a culturally responsive member of the community? It is important to be familiar with the knowledge of individual and social biases, cultural values, and power structures. Understanding these concepts is essential to cultivating inclusion from within.
