Achieving diversity is about bringing together a rich mix of people with different perspectives and from different backgrounds and creating and environment in which their differences are valued. A vibrant open and creative culture..... in which ideas flourish, where people thrive, grow and have fun. A culture where energy is released.

SQ and our spirituality influences us as people in our approach to others... it will counter-act any sense of drabness, and imbue us with a lightness of touch and a warmth of encounter that will enrich our professional lives. We are people first and professionals second- and the more whole and fulfilled we are as people, the better chance we have of being more effective professionals.

slide11

What spirituality can offer is a paradigm, or a way of seeing things, that can help us maintain and cherish the deep humanity of everyone we encounter
