Education is important because, first of all, people need to know that discrimination still exists. It is still real in the workplace, and we should not take that for granted.
Clearly, there aren't enough positive moments or interactions happening in the workplace. As a result, our economy suffers, companies suffer, and individual relationships suffer.
I strongly believe that you can't win in the marketplace unless you win first in the workplace. If you don't have a winning culture inside, it's hard to compete in the very tough world outside.
The quest for peace begins in the home, in the school and in the workplace.
