An addendum to the new Somerville Vision Statement provided by Lorie Reilly at Somerville Voices. It's great to see the City and the people of this city interact in a progressive and thoughtful way:
It’s interesting to me that the meaning of “diversity” has become focused around race and ethnicity. Obviously there are many other ways in which people can diverge from each other: religion, politics, physical abilities, family history, economic status, age, sexual orientation, and more. When my former employer’s human resource managers talked about seeking workforce diversity, I don’t think they meant they were actively recruiting more Jews, paraplegics, Catholics, or 60-year-old gay men — all of which were also under-represented on the company’s staff.
