Well today I’ve been doing a workbook on diversity at work… and actually quite enjoyed it too! I’ve lost count of the amount of diversity awareness sessions/days/courses I’ve done through work over the past 10 years and usually you look at it as a ‘jolly’. Today at work we were, unbelievably, very quiet. That never ever happens. On top of that, the rota put me in a part of the office where you don’t get much interaction with the rest of the team. I was actually bored at one point… Like I say, this never happens. I’ve got to complete a diversity workbook and I thought ‘now’s the time’. I couldn’t exactly sit there on my phone because ‘the management’ could see me. I didn’t know what to browse online which was work related.
Doing the workbook made me realise how my attitudes HAVE changed over the years. It’s also pretty amazing how much prejudice comes from your childhood. I’m not saying that I’m whiter than white but I am saying that I’m much more impartial than I ever was J
I’m getting seriously excited. I was telling a colleague about my eBook that I’m due to launch in the next couple of weeks, and she was very interested. I can’t tell you what it means for me to get this book on the market. The more awareness of pre-eclampsia and hellp syndrome, the better as far as I’m concerned. I’ve got to be careful how much I say in this blog because I’m not sure how much I’ll get away with!
