Have you ever been misunderstood due to cultural differences? Have you ever longed for everyday, logical, concrete steps for communicating and forming strong, lasting friendships with people from different cultures (i.e. difference genders, ethnicities, abilities, sexualities, etc.)? Former MTV Real World star and diversity consultant, Mohammed Bilal, has helped thousands of people move beyond the sheer tolerance of difference. His 12 Steps Towards Accepting Diversity is a fun, interactive presentation sprinkled with scholarship, hip-hop, and self-reflective narratives that equip the participant with easy, valuable, and powerful tools for appreciating the wondrous diversity around us.
