I am diversity…

I  Am Diversity,

I’m not limited to age, gender or race

I’m invisible at times, yet all around the place.

Let me take my seat at the table

Even though I may be differently able

My experience, my passion, my ability

Can add value for your company.

Learn about me, improve my under-representation

And I can provide a competitive edge to an entire nation.

I exclude no one, I am strengthened by all

My name is Diversity and I stand tall.

Recognise and keep me in the mix

Together, there’s no problem that we can’t fix.

I am your best hope towards creative innovation

And to many, I reflect truth and inspiration.

Our lives and companies will continue to change

Thus, the need for diversity and inclusion will always remain.

I’m the thought lurking behind the unfamiliar face

I’m the ingenuity that helps your team win the race.

I’m the solution that came from the odd question that was asked.

I stand out in the crowd when I, Diversity, am allowed to be unmasked.

Coupled with inclusion our lights burn longer

Together, we are smarter, better and stronger

I am Diversity

Yes, that’s me…

Charles Bennafield
