Career Girls Empowerment Lesson Video Series:
Importance of Diversity (1:26 sec)

How can being multilingual help you prepare for a great career? The role models in this video can help you learn the value of diverse languages and other differences we all have.

What is diversity and why is it so valuable? The role models in this video discuss the differences we all have — in education, upbringing, culture, ethnicity, language, gender, the way we think, talents, and more. They explain how these differences help create successful teams, like the ones you probably work with at school. You'll learn how your own differences, such as speaking more than one language, can help you succeed.

Use the Resources here to explore the meaning of diversity in different ways.
