Diversity Month

April is Celebrate Diversity Month, started in 2004 to recognize and honor the diversity surrounding us all. By celebrating differences and similarities during this month, organizers hope that people will get a deeper understanding of each other. April is also Autism Awareness Month, established to raise awareness about people with autistic spectrum disorders including autism and Asperger syndrome throughout the world.

  Here are four ideas on ways you can Celebrate Diversity Month:

  1. Host a multicultural movie night. Invite friends, family, or colleagues over to watch some multicultural and foreign films. You can even ask guests to bring a snack to represent a different country or culture.
  2. Attend a cultural art exhibit. Many cities are home to international or cultural art exhibits. Visit a nearby museum for a weekend outing and learn more about other cultures through the lens of fine and contemporary art.
  3. Play music from around the world in your office, classroom, car, or home. Celebrate the diversity of your employees, coworkers, or students by asking them to bring in examples of music from their own culture or heritage.
  4. Support minority-owned businesses. Visit a minority-owned business or utilize services from a minority vendor to show your support for their establishment.
