Subject:            Diversity Awareness Month
The month of October 2007, has been designated as BLM Montana/Dakotas Organization “Diversity Awareness Month.” Diversity is defined as “the condition of being different.” This month we can recognize all our human differences. Human differences may affect our customer relationships, our work relations, and our personal relationships.
Diversity is much broader than race and gender; it is inclusive and concerns us all. We are all unique and diverse. This month will give us the opportunity to visualize and appreciate how different and similar we all are.
During this month, the State Office and Field Office collateral-duty EEO staff will be organizing events and activities for all employees. If you would like to know more about events and activities in your office or how you can participate or get more involved, please contact your EEO office contact listed below.
