All About Diversity

by Angela P. Dodson

“Celebrate Diversity Month” was proposed in 2004, when two diversity companies, ProGroup, Inc. and Diversity Best Practices, created a proclamation for the observance. It is now widely observed in April.

For an interactive approach to learning about diversity, we recommend The Keep It Real Game, Diverse®-Version, a remarkable new “CommHUMANcation” tool for engaging people, enhancing understanding and stimulating meaningful discussions in classrooms and workshops about diversity. It is now available on our Website at

For information on how you can bring a workshop structured around the game to your site, see http://keepitreal.diverseeducation.com/category/Workshops/
