Dealing with Discrimination

Because they understand the beauty of diversity, leaders don’t like to see put-downs or discrimination take place. They understand that some people get put down by others a lot or are even left out of activities just because they look different, are from a different culture, have a disability, are gay or lesbian, or seem different for some other reason.

Leaders know that when anyone is put down or left out because they seem different, discrimination is happening. Leaders also know that discrimination is dangerous and will eventually hurt everyone in the group if it is not stopped.

Leaders first stop discrimination by setting a good example. They do this by making friends with those people who are quiet or seem left out and by helping them to make other friends. Leaders also speak out if they see people being put down by others or being left out of activities.
