The Challenge of Change

InclusiveAll Riversiders need to recognize that change is inevitable and that we can influence its directions while also making constructive adaptations.

  1. Institutions should create environments that foster better interpersonal and intergroup relations, respect, and understanding.
  2. In addition, institutions should provide formal opportunities to learn about diversity.
  3. Such opportunities may be of various types, such as making diversity an important curricular theme in K-12 schools, colleges, and universities and instituting diversity training or providing other diversity learning initiatives within government agencies, private businesses, non-profit organizations, religious institutions, youth associations, local media, and other entities.
  4. While institutions cannot legislate people's hearts and minds, the adoption and enforcement of selective rules, protocols, and procedures can help foster fairness, equality, respect, and understanding.
