Day 1 of the #MindfulKidsPeaceSummit is here! The theme today is We Are All One: Diversity, Inclusion, and Communication.

It focuses on mental health & stopping violence. 50+ experts speak about diversity, inclusion, communication, kindness, anti bullying, peace, mindfulness, positivity, social emotional learning, emotional intelligence, coping with stress, coping with emotions, coping with trauma, self-awareness, self-regulation, self-compassion, positive psychology, interaction with others, & so much more.

Now I’m speaking with Dr. Regina Washington, of Centerlink. She was so funny because she said that if she knew how to make everyone get along, she’d be in the Bahamas. You have to listen to get it, but it really made me laugh!
“Diversity starts with self. You, as a person, have different experiences, likes, dislikes. Appreciate what you bring to the table and appreciate others around us. Take a moment to learn about ourselves and others.”
“Once you teach people how to #askquestions as part of skill building, how to #communicate with people who are different, & how to listen, that can be transformed into application.” #Communication is a good spring board for #diversity & #inclusion.”
