“Diversity is the one true thing that we all have in common. Celebrate it every day,” Anonymous
On November 29th, 2018 Tyndall came together to recognise and celebrate cultural diversity in the workplace. Staff and students from 30 countries showcased their cultures, traditions and customs.
Days like this, are about bringing people together and giving them an opportunity to express their unique background and traditions in a way that’s fun and inclusive. It’s also about raising awareness and educating one another about our understanding of the values of cultural diversity, which is central to the development of an inclusive society.
Tyndall’s staff and students shared stories, photos, arts, crafts, flags and more for what was a very engaging, colourful and enjoyable event.
