Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Teaching Moment

--by OllyOxenFree, posted Mar 11, 2015
Today I held a very intriguing and thought provoking Diversity Discussion with my staff members. As part of our weekly meetings we hold 20-30 minutes to talk about a diversity issue, and how it relates to our jobs.

Today's discussion was held on "Disability." It took a while for the staff to get warmed up, but after they did warm up, it was easy to tell they were engaged and ready to learn more. I was just extremely happy they received the information well and want to learn more.

My act of kindness: simply teaching others to see those that are unseen by society and how we as able bodied people can make the world a better place for them.

I worked at a residental conference center, one of our guests was in a chair - I took the opportunity to have her tour the facility and give me notes on how our building could be more "chair friendly" - what an eye opener for me! Wow. So kudos to you for this work!
