Think global, think diverse, think & act

Barack and Michelle Obama are in Europe and it seams to be the most important news on the world. Yes, yes the G-20 summit is an important event. That is the reason why they went there. Right?

But it seams that Michelle Obama’s speech in the Elizabeth Garret Anderson Language School in London (one of the most diverse schools in UK) is more important for Brits. You remember when she said:

My husband – you know him? – he is going to be very jealous of my afternoon. He's meeting with important people, but it's not as much fun as being here.

A day latter, during his speech in Strasbourg (France) Barack addressed the challenges and possibilities confronting world and young people:

It would be a tragedy if all of you who are so talented and energetic -- if you let that go to waste, if you just stood back and watched the world pass you by.

Better to jump in, get involved -- and it does mean that sometimes you'll get criticized and sometimes you'll fail and sometimes you'll be disappointed -- but you'll have a great adventure. And at the end of your life, hopefully you'll be able to look back and say, 'I made a difference.

It seams Obamas made a great introduction to discussion about Diversity Strategies links,
