Diversity permeates almost all aspects of life these days...at work, at school, in food courts, in hobby classes and in the neighborhood. So, it becomes imperative that one learns how to speak to a diverse global audience, and that we learn how to weave loads of respect and sensitivity into our daily lives and interactions.
