MULTICULTURALISM

Diversity In Action

 

Multiculturalism is the social psychological and social scientific concept of embracing cultural differences with respect and understanding, recognizing that the world is full of a wide variety of peoples, cultures, and religions, and it is this variety, in its totality, that creates the amazing diversity which comprises the people of the world.  


By embracing multiculturalism we have the opportunity to learn about other people’s cultures and customs, religious beliefs, spirituality, values and relational structures, modes of behavior, symbolism, history, and so much more.  Our world is vastly diverse and this diversity must be recognized and respected as an opportunity for knowledge and learning, and in doing so we honor the spectacular tapestry of the human species.
