How to use diversity in a sentence?

  1. Hubert Humphrey:

    Fortunately, the time has long passed when people liked to regard the United States as some kind of melting pot, taking men and women from every part of the world and converting them into standardized, homogenized Americans. We are, I think, much more mature and wise today. Just as we welcome a world of diversity, so we glory in an America of diversity -- an America all the richer for the many different and distinctive strands of which it is woven.

  2. Leila Sarangi:

    I think this leads into some of the other points that people need to be trained on, you know, equity, diversity and inclusion and how that translates into the classroom so that we're setting up like, universal design, trauma-informed practices, strengths-based practices that really meet kids, where they're at in all of their diversity that respects them for who they are, you know, that, celebrate them and then build on their strengths in all of their diversity.

  3. Chloe Teachey:

    Eliminating affirmative action does not mean opposing against diversity. Universities should base admissions decisions on academics and extracurricular activities, not skin color. There are other ways to promote diversity within the merit system, affirmative action may sound like a positive policy for universities to have, but it is discrimination. The term tries hides its discriminatory practices behind the concept of diversity.

  4. Eric Trump:

    We've done a really good job welcoming everyone, all sorts of diversity, but the only place where there's a lack of diversity is a lack of diversity in thought -- and that's something we have to change, you have to be able to argue both sides of the coin ... That's something I learned a lot from my father. He'd sort of make you argue the opposite side, even if you didn't necessarily believe it, just so you could put yourself in those shoes, this notion that that doesn't exist anymore is very scary, cause what do those people in the real world when they for the first time face real adversity? What do they do if they're not able to do that? If they're not able to take some criticism, if they grew up in that participation medal, you know, era that so many of our kids do.

  5. John Fitzgerald Kennedy:

    If we cannot now end our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity.
