- February is Black History Month and celebrates the rich cultural heritage, triumphs and adversities that are an indelible part of our country’s history. I only recently learned that every year has a theme, and this year’s theme, “Black Health and Wellness,” focuses on: the legacy of Black scholars and medical practitioners while also discussing the Black community’s experience with our healthcare system.
- March is Women’s History Month, and March 8 is International Women’s Day, which is a day that not only celebrates female achievements and the progress made toward women’s rights, but also brings attention to ongoing struggles for equality around the world. The roots of this celebration goes back to the late 1800’s and early 1900s. It grew from women’s socialist movements and early women’s trade union groups. The focus is upon women workers, and advancing women’s rights in the workforce, politics and society.
- April was designated as Celebrate Diversity month in 2004 in order to educate and demonstrate the value of understanding the racial and cultural differences of our citizens. This is an acknowledgement of the differences in race, gender, ethnicity, nationality, disabilities, religion, and socio-economic status. The highlighting of these differences serves to kick off conversations that promote the necessary acceptance of all kinds of people, and to generate a vision of celebration and empathy.
