Thought of the Week - Equality and Diversity

Theme: Equality and Diversity

Quote:

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the colour of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

  • Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

Explanation/Question/Challenge:

We are all different and even thought we may live in a similar area to someone our cultural and social background will have an impact on the way we think and act. We may have preconceived ideas of what groups of people may be like based on media influence or the influence of those around us. Our challenge is to look past gender, race, sexuality, faith or anything else that could make us different from someone.

  • Do you think we life in an equal world? Why?
  • Do you think it is possible that everyone can be treated equally? What do you think it looks like to live in a world full of diversity?
  • In groups think about what you would change to make a more equal world? What would that place look like?
