Creative Mornings - Inclusivity

Last Friday was a busy one with a second event that I attended, Creative Mornings Columbus that was held at the Smart Columbus headquarters. I’m a fan of Creative Mornings and I recommend attending their monthly gatherings. Randy Sharma was the featured speaker and the topic was “Inclusivity.” He gave a heartfelt presentation on what it feels like to be an “outsider” and the empathy that it takes to understand one another.

Here’s an excerpt from the program’s description:

The “face” of Columbus continues to change rapidly, with the influx of African and Asian immigrants and the increased visibility of the LGBTQ community. With each group comes a different set of cultural norms. What do we have to gain by welcoming those cultures into our communities? How can we do this effectively?
