In recent years, the world has gained a greater appreciation for diversity. Yet we can always do better. We’ve seen the need for improvement in various eras of history, form the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s to the Black Lives Matter Movement in the 2020s. A peaceful and prosperous society depends upon diversity and inclusion.

Thus businesses and other workplaces are working hard to create diversity, equity, and inclusion programs to ensure all people are valued. One way to do this is to use a diversity calendar with holiday and cultural events.

Below is a small diversity and inclusion calendar for this month. It includes religious holidays, heritage months, and monthly diversity program themes.
