Diversitypromotions.com announces Fifth Anniversary of National Diversity Day October 1, 2010

National Diversity Day was established in 2005 as a day everyone can celebrate those things that make us different and the same. It is a day everyone can come together and appreciate and celebrate the great diversity found in our country.


2010-08-15
MIDDLETOWN, CT, August 15, 2010 (Press-News.org) This is the fifth anniversary of National Diversity Day! Diversitypromotions.com established National Diversity Day in 2005 (next one October 1, 2010) as officially listed in the Chase's Calendar of Events for the last five years. We want to encourage everyone to start planning their own NDD celebrations now! (We have included a list of ideas below to get you started.)

National Diversity Day is a day to celebrate and embrace who we are, despite our differences, no matter what race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, nationality, or disability. A day to reflect on and learn about different cultures and ideologies. A day to vow acceptance and tolerance. A day to consciously address these areas at educational and religious institutions, as well as in the workplace and at home. National Diversity Day is an annual event on the first Friday in October (Diversity Awareness Month). For more information, see http://www.nationaldiversityday.com or www. diversitypromotions.com.

There are so many ways you can celebrate National Diversity Day at home, at work, at school, or in your church/synagogue/mosque, etc. We have put together a partial list below to get your creative juices going!

• Host a pot luck meal where participants bring in dishes that represent their ethnicity or their favorite ethnic foods.
• Invite speakers from different backgrounds to speak to your group about their traditions, or the challenges they have faced related to diversity.
• Have a diversity-related coloring contest or essay-writing contest.
• Create a craft that represents different cultures.
• Have a celebration or festival that brings together different ethnic groups to celebrate.
• Bring together different religious groups to learn about each other or pray for world peace together.
• Explore different cultures through art forms, poetry, music, crafts, traditional costumes, language, etc. Have an art show featuring local, diverse artists, or a poetry reading, or a concert.
• Rent movies that deal with diverse topics.
• Classroom project: Have each student write down something that makes them unique, different, diverse, or something that interests them that is diversity-related on a piece of paper and their name. Put the slips of paper in a container, shake up and have each student draw one slip. They have to research that topic and either do an art project, write an essay, or create something related to that topic (song, poetry, dance, etc.) that will teach the rest of the class about it. A fun way to learn about each other and about a different topic.
• Show short videos that feature different ethnic dances and music.
• Display a photography exhibit of different cultures--could even feature the students/families or employees/families of your organization.
• Have a display or flag ceremony of different nations' flags.

In addition to planning your own NDD celebration, we would greatly appreciate it if you would help us pass the word on by telling others, by adding it to your company or organization's calendar, submit it to any newsletters or websites you know of, tell your schools, churches, synagogues, temples, mosques or any other organizations you think might be interested in knowing about it, etc. We depend on people like you to assist us in spreading the word!

If you want us to help promote your NDD celebration, please email us your event details to drparvis@gmail.com. We would love it if you would share with us your stories and pictures of your National Diversity Day celebration--we may even post them on our web site!
