The world has so many different ways of living, traditions, beliefs, and religions—this is why representation in all facets of life is so important. Focusing on diversity helps us to make better decisions as organizations, families, and individuals. In its most basic form, diversity is the presence of various differences, experiences, and identities. This can refer to people of various races, genders, socioeconomic statuses, sexual orientations, religions, ethnicity, national origins, and mental or physical abilities. The more we can hear and truly listen to others, the more we can grasp an understanding. Firstly, when exercised, it helps provide a new perspective. Secondly, when applied, it can improve our thinking, our decision making, and more. Celebrate Diversity Month is an opportunity to listen, share, and grow together.
Celebrate Diversity Month is an opportunity for PK to build on our ongoing focus on diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging, or DEIB, are the four pillars driving real impact. In addition, they influence the creation of a society where everyone is invited, has access and resources, feels welcomed, and feels valued. To better serve our clients and model inclusivity, cultivating a space where everyone is celebrated for who they are and what they bring to the table is part of our PK DNA.
