In nature, the world constantly seeks balance—asserting that each half of a whole has the same value. When that equilibrium is challenged the entire ecosystem is at risk. Interdependency demands equity in order for all to thrive.
As we exited Black History Month and entered Women’s History Month, these thoughts of nature stick in my mind. Lacking human ability to reason, plants and animals unconsciously seek balance. Yet, for all our advancement, we humans continue to struggle with creating an equitable world. Off-balance, we put at risk everyone when we fail to implement innovative approaches to a persistent problem.
