Too many times we feel helpless when it comes to the issues that influence the world that extends beyond our inner circle. Specifically, when it comes to dealing with racism today, we tend to shy away and think the issue is too big, or that the opinion of one person or a few individuals won't make a difference. This is where EMMA steps in to let you know that you can be the one to encourage the ethic and corporate social responsibility we all have. We help to answer the question, "What is diversity?" and we provide the education and opportunities that are needed to address cultural diversity in our society.
By offering a portal where individuals and groups can access information about diversity and how it applies to our world you can get involved in cultural diversity activities and do more than just hear and read about cultural diversity in the news. We offer the opportunities you need to take action and to make a difference in your communities and as a result, make a difference in society as a whole. Discover where you can hear diversity speakers so you can learn more about what others are doing and about what you can do. EMMA Interactive allows you to learn more about worldwide issues by publishing articles on racism and how it affects other parts of our world. You'll also learn about the impact that the EMMA Awards continue to make, bringing to light those who are already working toward change. The icons we recognize set examples for all of us and show us that change can start even on the smallest level. Take a look around, read our articles for more information, find out how you can get involved, and ask yourself what diversity means to you.
