Promoting tolerance and diversity – raising awareness on acceptance

Acceptance has been a huge problem lately, from all possible point of view. In politics, people have to deal with severe discrimination. In the everyday life, people struggle with the major lack of tolerance. Promoting the idea of acceptance is now a necessity, considering how many people out there suffer because things are not perceived the way they should. This is a controversial subject that deserves to be discussed in order to raise awareness on acceptance, on tolerance, on how people should behave towards others regardless of their political affiliations, gender or opinions. This article is going to present several methods to promote acceptance and tolerance in the society.

Defining racism, sexism, and other similar concepts

Understanding what tolerance is about is strictly correlated to noticing when racism, sexism or other concepts from the same area are present. For this, you should understand the definition of each concept and recognize them in your daily social interactions. Racism represents the discrimination against people of different race, considering that certain races have higher rights compared to others. Sexism is the discrimination of people based on their gender. The goal of raising awareness on acceptance is to perceive everyone as equal and accept everyone as part of the society without prejudices.

Speak out

If you want to promote acceptance, you need to learn how to speak out. Talking about Moshe Kantor, watch some of his motivational interviews where he promotes tolerance and see how freely he speaks about this topic. You should learn how to express your opinion and sustain it with solid arguments when talking with people who don’t understand the importance and meaning of acceptance and tolerance in today’s society. Keeping your ideas to yourself won’t lead to any change, so you have to learn how to communicate your ideas in a convincing, persuasive manner. Have your ideas heard by others and don’t hold anything to yourself, regardless of what people think.

Final thoughts

Acceptance is a sensitive topic that should be brought to light more often. This way, people can get informed about the importance of tolerance and they might be convinced by the many arguments brought by big personalities – authors, entrepreneurs, philosophers and not only. Promoting this topic will only do good for the society, broadening the perception of people and making them understand that acceptance is the key to a more peaceful, healthier world.
