Cultural Diversity

Cultural Diversity is most  important because in the United States and other countries, our workplace, schools, and people are various ethnics groups and other interests. All people can learn from one another however first we have to level understand their culture because will help the gain of knowledge and work together. Cultural Diversityis most key of people need to know is communicating. Cultural Diversity is more of training people to learn the negative stereotype about one another.

Cultural meaning knowledge, beliefs, attitudes, habits, laws, etc. those are specific to one group of people or one society.

Diversity is explained in the dictionary as being different. According to the way you use it diversity it can mean different, diverse or unlikely. Diversity can best be defined as beingdifferent. It’s respecting everyone even if they are pretty, ugly, fat, gay,lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or even disabled.

I have received a random e-mail from Weldon Kennedy, Change.Org about the lesbian woman who was refused to get out of the clinic, due to her sexual orientation. Look at the article below…

Paola Ziritti is unthinkably brave to speak publicly about the “clinic.” She endured physical assault, sexual abuse, and a constant battery of insults. Guards would even throw buckets of cold water and urine on her. For two years, this was Paola’s waking nightmare… because she’s a lesbian. The “doctors” and guards at the clinic were trying to “cure” her.

Paola lives in Ecuador, where these so-called clinics are terrifyingly common — although the government shut down 27 this year, 180 clinics remain open, and most of the prisoners there are women. (Some gay men and transgendered people are in the clinics as well, but far fewer.)

Paola’s parents knew they were sending her to a forced confinement clinic, but they had no idea how awful it would be. Once Paola’s mother realized what she’d done, she tried to get her daughter back, but the clinic said no. The process to free Paola took a year.

A few incredibly courageous Ecuadorian women are fighting back — they call themselves Fundacion Causana. The women of Fundacion Causana started a petition on Change.org demanding that Ecuadoran Minister of Public Health Dr. David Chiriboga Allnut investigate and shut down all 180 remaining clinics that torture women to “cure” them. Please sign the petition right now.

Fundacion Causana does direct-service work on the ground to save women from the clinics, but they say it’s not enough. They need the unbridled support of the Ecuadoran government to get all of the clinics shut down.

So far, the government has only shut down a small cluster of clinics in one region of the country. Ecuador’s government officials need to know that we are watching and will not stand idly by while women are imprisoned and tortured.

Please sign Fundacion Causana’s petition demanding that the Ecuadoran Minister of Public Health investigate and shut down every “clinic” that tortures members of Ecuador’s LGBT community:

Thanks for being a change-maker,
