The word diversity refers to something that is diverse, meaning that it
has lots of different kinds or types. For example, you could have a box of
candies with lots of diversity, meaning there are many different kinds of
treats, like sour gummies, hard lemon-drops, licorice, and lollipops. You could
listen to a radio station that plays really diverse music, and switches from
classical to show-tunes to country to jazz. You could even have a really
diverse wardrobe filled with everything from silly hats to dainty dresses!
The word “diversity” is
often used to refer to people. Have you noticed that there are many different
kinds of people in the world? Tall, short, curly-haired, straight-haired,
young, old, out-going, shy, light-skinned, dark-skinned, athletic, artistic:
our world is pretty diverse!
It’s important to remember that being diverse helps make us all unique and special. Everybody deserves dignity and respect, and you should always treat other people the same way you’d want to be treated too. Be proud of the things that make you special, and appreciate the things that make others special too!
