This is a group for anyone interested in learning about ethnic cultures.

There are numerous advantages to accepting cultural diversity. The new experiences and friends you will gain, and the things that you will learn, are innumerable. Your perspective and experience will be broadened unbelievably when you work to explore and learn about other cultures.

You will also have the opportunity to become multilingual if you so choose, and are willing to put in the time and effort to learn the language associated with each particular culture. This will also make you more valuable in a diverse world, where being able to communicate with many is a key requirement of success.

Embracing cultural diversity starts with your own willingness to change your thoughts and behavior toward others who are different from yourself. This acceptance not only improves your life, but can improve that of others when they see and follow your positive example.

We will learn about each other, through many fun filled social events: culture museums, dining out, coffee & tea socials, live music, arts, festivals, good conversation and more.

So, if you like embracing culture diversity, this is the place for you.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
