Embracing Cultural Diversity
Elizabeth Lesser Keynotes - The speeches by Elizabeth Lesser address critical cultural issues. Lesser stands entirely opposed to...
Lesser uses the metaphor of an individual's inner mystic and warrior and how the warrior tends to overcome one's mystic nature when otherising. The cure to this is what Lesser refers to as "taking the other to lunch." Invite someone whose opinions, beliefs and lifestyles conflict with your own (to a reasonable degree). Talk about shared experiences, what issues concern you and ask a question you've always wanted to ask from someone on the "other" side. By doing so you are effectively dropping all pretense of "know-it-all" behavior and are making a positive choice to encourage diversity and inclusion.
