Celebrating Diversity Seems simple doesn’t it? All one needs to do is scan the Internet and find out about the cuisine of the people they work with, use the right words and smile when necessary!

The take away from this speech is the understanding that the most important factor is a "diversity of thought" and its impact on the growth of each individual - which translates to a more inviting workplace.
