The Diversity Calling: Building Community One Story at a Time
DiCE (Diversity Community Exchange) is a group of Diversity professionals from various industry sectors (independent consultants, corporate Diversity officers, and academia) who came together for the purposes of strengthening each other's skills and commitment to Diversity principles, and explore ways to make the Diversity message more understandable, visible, and accepted. Along the way, they discovered the tremendous unifying power of stories to help effect these goals. The Diversity Calling - Building Community One Story at a Time shares the stories of each of the nine DiCE members: Sonny, Juan, Santalynda, Simma, Sidalia, Nadia, Tommy, Joe-Joe, and Marvin as they made their individual journeys and choices to perform Diversity work. Reading their stories may cause you to laugh, cry, and hope as you get to know them better, and in all likelihood will inspire you to share a few stories of your own!
