In the final part of our series on diversity and inclusion, we talk about the power of learning the biggest story of all: the story of humankind. While this might feel overwhelming, it is so important to understand who you are in a broader context because we do not exist in isolation. With more divisiveness than ever before, we need to open up our hearts and view the world with empathy and compassion in order to truly understand one another. In this episode, we hear about worldviews, how we construct them, and what you can do to shift and expand yours. By being open to learning, you will always have so many opportunities to experience love and warmth, even towards those whose beliefs differ from yours. We also learn more about humility, questions you can ponder to contemplate the human story, and the importance of always holding onto hope, no matter what.
