Reflect on the 5 elements of diversity. Remember, this list is not exhaustive, and you may have items of your own to add!

For your initial post, recall a scenario in which you overcame a challenging situation in your work with co-teachers, children, families, or the community. Detail which elements of diversity were present and how you were able to overcome the challenge or celebrate the observed differences to solve a problem.

Note : If you have not had the opportunity to interact within an early learning program, draw from your personal experiences with a family member, friend, or an observed interaction between two individuals to answer the discussion question.
