BAMBI Magazine October 2023
It’s October and Global Diversity Awareness Month around the world. For this special month, I’d like to take the opportunity to shine a spotlight on our collective uniqueness and highlight our differences at BAMBI, as that’s what makes us more interesting and so much better!
BAMBI takes pride in being a hub of diversity; a community where inclusion thrives. We are proud to be a place where we can all gather together and honor the vibrant cultures that represent the fabric of our organization. As we navigate the cultural mosaic of Thailand, it’s important we remember to acknowledge and appreciate the colors that each culture adds to Thailand, to our lives, and to BAMBI.
I’d also like to point out that the spirit of Global Diversity Awareness Month is about embracing differences. With such embraces, we find beauty. Now more than ever, in our interconnected world, technology makes it easy to stay connected and gives us access to even more kinds of people—people of all faiths, cultures, abilities, genders, and ethnicities. It’s important to keep embracing this diversity, as this sets a great example for our kids and gives them the invaluable lesson of acceptance, which helps to pave the way towards a more inclusive and harmonious future.
Isn’t it wonderful that we can make a difference in our everyday lives? Each one of us, whether a parent, a teacher, or simply a caring individual, has the power to create an environment where diversity flourishes. Be it in our homes, schools, favorite hangouts, or food spots—let’s make these spaces a reflection of how we want to feel and how we want to be treated.
So, as we dive into Global Diversity Awareness Month this October, let’s not only celebrate the flavors of our differences, but also accept that while we have come a long way, there is still work to be done, and as far as possible, with a smile! I am proud to be part of such a diverse organization as BAMBI, and I’m happy to have you with me on this journey.
