“Do One thing for Diversity and Inclusion”

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 20 Mag 2011

To mark the UN World Day for Cultural Diversity, UNESCO and the UN Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) are launching a global campaign to create a grassroots movement of people who advocate for diversity. The campaign calls on individuals to take one action relevant to their lives that promotes diversity and inclusion–from experiencing another culture through film, food, or museums, to learning about other cultures or countries, or dedicating time to volunteer for that cause. The campaign, “Do ONE Thing for Diversity and Inclusion”, will work via a dedicated Facebook page, serving as a platform for people around the world to share their experiences through posts and videos. The campaign has already won the support and participation of several major corporations from Silicon Valley, including Cisco, Intuit, True Blue Inclusion, McAfee, and Yahoo, among others. From diversity councils and employee resource groups, to cross-cultural training, these companies aim to mobilize their employees to build a worldwide movement which, every year will celebrate diversity. Along with the corporate partners, hundreds of NGOs and foundations are also joining the campaign, that brings alive the values enshrined in UNESCO’s Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity and which will culminate at the occasion of the Alliance of Civilizations Fourth Annual Forum in Doha, Qatar on December 11-13, 2011, where the campaign will show global public support for cultural diversity and inclusion to world leaders.
