Diversity - NDS2019 Day 1

Today marks the start of Susan McCuistion’s New Diversity Summit, a week full of diversity and inclusive leadership



This weekend I enjoyed another Star Trek episode. Yes, I’m a Trekkie.

I also read an article from world economic forum- it captured the star trek formula:

The Star Trek Formula

"The Star Trek formula is to work together, share ideas and resources, look out for the best interest of society and the planet, use technology to benefit and advance, and develop each person as a valuable member of society. Local solutions to local problems, solved through inclusive innovation."

Humans, Ferengi, Vulcans,even Klingons at some advanced stage – united in a federation of planets, with star fleet mission being:

Space: The final frontier
To explore strange new worlds
To seek out new life and new civilizations
To boldly go where no man has gone before

Star Trek offers a hopeful vision of the future and a template for our lives and our society that we can aspire to!
