Calendar for Diversity and Inclusion

We make constant reassessments of our role as cultural mediators. Over the past year, one of our goals has been to be more inclusive and show the riches of minorities in terms of culture and customs.


We sincerely believe that the world will become a more prosperous place with increased knowledge. Our faith and culture are no less valuable because we also highlight others. It is time to embrace all of humanity without sacrificing our own unique identity.


We want to learn from others and work in a spirit of tolerance and human unity. It is no coincidence that we have chosen the theme "diversity and inclusion." Diversity without inclusion is just individual pieces of the puzzle; together, these pieces become a beautiful canvas. The canvas of human diversity grows step by step with increased awareness leading to a more tolerant society.


We welcome you to learn more about customs that may not be traditionally Unixplorian but most definitely human!
