International Day of Tolerance

By November 18, 2019 No Comments

As we reflect on the International Day of Tolerance which was observed on Saturday the 16th of November, we think about how we can strengthen our tolerance amongst our diverse workforce. BIC fully support and embrace those of us who have different beliefs, cultural backgrounds and what it means to live and work in a society of true acceptance and how our differences can bring us together to create a new reality, one where the richness and backgrounds of all are accepted and celebrated.

 

With our commitment to Modern Slavery, the International Day of Tolerance is part of who BIC are and the essential core values that govern this diverse and culturally dynamic workforce. Whilst this day of annual observance was declared by UNESCO in 1995 to generate public awareness of the dangers of intolerance, BIC opened its doors in 1989 to begin the journey of acceptance, one where tolerance, openness and difference are the norm and not the exception.

 

We invite our clients and partners to support not only this day but share in the awareness of what it means to be tolerant and living together in peace through Global Citizenship Education.
