We have a very diverse staff and this can cause some heated discussions but it also allows us to grow and build synergy among teams and projects we work on together. Also, because our staff is so diverse and from many countries and cultures, each owns their unique culturalisms and traits and that means unique biases and ways of thinking so you need to proceed with caution and kindness. I found it refreshing that we can navigate topics and situations that allow us to learn and grow from each other and appreciate the diversity. As we are able to rub shoulders and listen to each others experiences, it creates empathy and respect. Of course there are often viewpoints expressed that are different but this has proven helpful as we break barriers and learn from each other. Most importantly, there is a time and a place for everything and you need to be careful. Proceed with what feels right for you and your company.
