Diversity and Inclusion – Celebrating our differences through never-ending curiosity

diversity and inclusion

Celebrating our differences through never-ending curiosity

What is dignity worth to you?

Imagine you work and live in an environment where your uniqueness is welcomed and embraced.

Imagine a workplace where every voice is valued, diversity and inclusion is the culture and equity is the norm.

This is possible for all of us.  Removing barriers and reducing biases.  Amplifying marginalized voices to drive sustainable change and inclusive behaviour.

You will discover your diversity and inclusion journey by being curious, engaging in candid conversation. If you feel uncomfortable at some point, continue your journey, because getting out of your comfort zone will allow you to explore all the richness that surrounds you.

Fear or ignorance should no longer fuel you. Not everything that is faced can be changed but nothing can be changed until it is faced. Change is always an opportunity to reflect, act and so much more…

We have reached a pivotal moment where we must reset the button, unlearn, relearn and learn a new normal.

And don’t misunderstand me. It is you who determines how that normalcy should look and feel.

Having that ability and maturity to be your authentic self, accepting and appreciating everything you are, both your imperfections and your qualities.  Dare to celebrate your beauty, your culture.

You have the freedom to determine who you become. Putting yourself first is not egocentric, it is a humble technique of self-esteem. Knowing who you are in order to connect with others. Be ready to show your vulnerability.

No need to fit in a box, get rid of the box. You have a unique fingerprint.  Embrace it and the footprint you will leave will be worth it.

Courage, compassion, consistency and communication are part of my human toolkit. I have developed a genuine curiosity for people. My travels have enabled me to develop my cultural awareness. I have built amazing relationships across the globe. The various hardships I experienced have only made me stronger. Humility is my daily vitamin and God is my GPS. You are not alone and will never be. Be unapologetically intentional.

My mission in life is to break the silence of invisible inequality and neutralize biases. Empowering everyone to rise and celebrate their beautiful ethnicity, culture and life journey. Creating a safe space for sharing stories and unshackling limiting beliefs. My name is Khady Gaye Sow.

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
