Multicultural wellness acknowledges that diversity is only the first step to individual success and a strong, healthy community. How we truly appreciate our diversity and leverage our differences optimizes our success. Intersectional identities such as race, sexual identity, gender identity, age, ability status, ethnicity, religion, etc must be explored. When we fully engage with difference, we are able to clarify our values and challenge assumptions and appreciate of our diversity - then only are we able to rise up in our difference and benefit from our richly diverse community.
