True practice of diversity requires humility. One should start with a position of trust and respect for another, and not be prejudiced by stereotypes or personal experiences. This is hard to do. And for those who are 'successful' in the modern world, humility is the hardest to achieve. It is better to look down rather than up - the more one 'succeeds' and comes in the public limelight, the more willing one should be to bow. Silence is also an expression of humility. In the modern world of noise pollution, everyone wants to be heard. However, it is the humble who are likely to make the most difference!
