needs a diverse workforce"
of making others right or wrong, or bottling up right and wrong in
ourselves, there's a middle way, a very powerful middle way......
could we have no agenda when we walk into a room with another person,
not know what to say, not make that person wrong or right? Could we
see, hear, feel other people as they really are? It is powerful to
practice this way....... true communication can happen only in that

“The course really raised awareness
that we are all to some degree susceptible to stereotypes and prejudices.
Change has to start within oneself!”
Quote from participant, 2008

to change the things that I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
