Diversity is important because it means that we are all included, we belong, we are accepted. We all want to be heard, seen, and to matter.

Diversity is important because inequality exists. Allowing for diversity means being open to different things and acceptance of different cultures and perspectives in the world, different clothing, different food, different accents.

I love that our students are first generation, that they are ESL, that they are poor, that 10 percent have disabilities, that we have high school students, that we have grandmas and grandpas, and when they come here, they learn how fabulous they are.

 
Juan Dixon

To me, diversity is important because it allows us to change and move forward and adapt. It allows anyone to go almost anywhere and do anything.
