The benefits arising from societal diversity are well-documented. Research shows being exposed to people who are different from us broadens our horizons, enhances our creativity and even makes us happier. But how exactly can we succeed with cultivating a more diverse community in Lakewood?
LakewoodAlive, a nonprofit community development organization, announces it will host a community forum – entitled Embracing Diversity: Fostering Equity and Inclusion in Lakewood – from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 23, at Lakewood Public Library (15425 Detroit Avenue in Downtown Lakewood). Co-hosted by the Lakewood Community Relations Advisory Commission, this community conversation will offer insightful dialogue regarding how we as Lakewoodites can further our commitment to embracing and celebrating diversity within our city.
