Ayanna Watson, founder of Black Atheists of America will lead a discussion on why "Diversity Matters". The discussion will cover the importance of embracing one’s own diversity and the benefits of encouraging others to embrace their differences. Often times, in an attempt to live a more ethical life, people focus on the similarities and are afraid to focus on diversity. The idea stems from the ideology that finding a common ground is the best way to relate to each other. She will discuss how focusing on diversity can help us appreciate the dignity and worth of every person and work for justice, equity, and compassion in human relations.
