I celebrate diversity throughout the year with my sorority as we meet with middle and high school students to discuss important events regarding black history. These interactions led me to my current role with Riverside as a Student Engagement Coordinator. I consider Riverside a top notch health care organization.

I celebrate by renewing my commitment to treating every person with respect and kindness. This belief did not start when she became a team member of Riverside but was something her parents instilled in all 12 children to ,”do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

I don’t just celebrate diversity during the observance month, but year around. I make sure to involve my family in different activities that include going to local events, listening to music, and watching movies and documentaries about other cultural and ways of life.

Recognition for the global and local contributions of Women to the field of medicine and science is growing. Women bring unique perspectives to patient care and problem solving. As a healthcare institution, celebrating their achievements further strengthens the care provided to the patients and their families and fosters improved outcomes. Celebrate Diversity offers an opportunity to pay homage to the countless women who have assumed the role of professional and personal care givers and to be inspired by them to bring our better selves to care for others as we would care for those we love.

 

Arab American Heritage Month

One way that we can “Celebrate Diversity Month” is by recognizing that April is also National Arab American Heritage Month. We honor the heritage and culture of Arab Americans, and we pay tribute to the contributions that Arab Americans have made in the history of our nation. Arab Americans are those individuals with ancestral, cultural, ethnic, linguistic, familial, or heritage ties to one or more of the 22 Arab League countries: Algeria, Bahrain, Comoros, Djibouti, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen.
