Diversity Matters with Ayanna Watson

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.

    Very disappointing. Content was meager, poorly delivered, and included almost nothing about the implications of having 'Atheists' in the organization's title

      I'm sorry that you were disappointed but I do not think that it is fair for criticizing her for not talking about something that was off topic for what she said that she would address.

    I am interested in the fine walk between culture and reason. When, if ever, should one go against "diversity", is multiculturalism and relativism a problem when considering diversity, and why should anyone be "proud/ashamed/neither" for something they had no choice or control (e.g. being Asian, a woman, gay, etc.).

      I can't post on it either. You'll have to ask the UUCF staff about that.
