Diversity and Cross-Cultural Relations Beyond Race and Color
Diversity, as it’s used in the “West” specifically in North America, is often limited to skin color, gender or some other physical surface feature. Yet even “White” North Americans, who travel to European cities, can quickly feel well outside of their boundaries once on the ground. In the “East”, where people may have similar features and color, diversity can be based on religion, tribe, social cast region and more. The idea of color as diversity quickly fades away when you zoom in beyond the surface. In this roundtable, let us share our thoughts and experiences of diversity and leave with a greater perspective of the concept to appreciate the world through a wider lens.
