Bullying, whether cyber or in person, is a lack of understanding and/or appreciating diversity. A bully can be anyone, co-worker, boss, student, friend, etc. The actions may be minimal or excessive. No matter the degree of the actions, bullying need to stop. The question is, “Just how can we work to eliminate such actions which seem to be on the rise?”
The book Diversity Just What Is It And Why Does It Keep Changing?, written by Sharon L. Burton, brings to life a story of bullying. This work demonstrates, chapter after chapter, how to respect and appreciate diversity by delivering different types of educational stories on diversity. It shows characters who do not understand difference and then moves to show how to develop and appreciate others. Readers and workshop participants can grow their knowledge exponentially by reading and sharing this book and reviewing the though provoking questions at the end of each chapter.
Bursting with contemporary and current day perspectives, Diversity Just What Is It And Why Does It Keep Changing?, calls for people, businesses, schools, and etc. to take pleasure in celebrating differences and enhancing their communication skills by learning to work within multicultural environments and multiethnic locations.
