Take the Gathering of Kindness Diversity Atlas survey

This year we’ve teamed up with Cultural Infusion. We’re inviting our Gathering of Kindness community to take this three minute survey to help us understand the diversity within our Community.

 

 

 

 

Cultural Infusion’s vision is to create a world that is culturally harmonious. Diversity Atlas is a cultural diversity data-mapping platform that reveals and celebrates the richness of diversity that exists, acting as a catalyst for transformational changes in equality and inclusion. 

 

Their work with Healthwest Group has shown that when healthcare workers better understand and represent the communities they serve, there are shorter hospital stays and better health outcomes.
