Is your holiday table set for diversity and inclusion? Do your traditions embrace difference? Is there a beloved community?
Setting a holiday table is an opportunity to bring out the best in yourself as well as possessions and to feast, It's also a time to share conversations and storytelling. Many families will host intergenerational sittings where old and new ideas about life can converge. Differences at the table can be meaningful when the invisible hand of empathy connects us through varied experiences. I'm interested to know how you move conversations that allow for more inclusion where others can be heard and embraced. I also encourage you to listen to Jay Smooth's TED X Hampshire College talk about "Race and Pockets of Prejudice" at
Please share your stories and add questions that you think help the conversation with family and friends.
