This week’s Teen Resource, the YMCA, had an action item for us to complete. To write an Inclusion Resolution.
Diversity and Inclusion
Diversity is understanding that there are differences between people. When we talk about diversity and inclusion, we are making strides to include people who may be different from us. By creating our own Inclusion Resolution, we are coming up with a way we are able to include those who are different from us and make the committment to do it.
My Inclusion Resolution
I talked about writing one in my post this week. So, I went to the website, printed off the template and filled it out. See the picture of it below
My resolution includes,
Being open to learning about others and understanding their stories.
Reading more about others who are different from me.
Writing about their story and sharing it on my blog.
That’s the inclusion resolution I made. If you would like to make one of your own, follow this link to the YMCA and download a copy of the Y’s Inclusion Resolution template. Fill it out and share it on your social media profiles.
We can all do a better job of embracing people who are different from ourselves by,
- Reaching out to others.
- Starting conversations.
- Taking the time to listen and learn.
