Inclusive Leadership Co-operative member, Bonnie Robertson, recently sent the ILC this news from the Baha’i International Community:
“Building inclusive societies requires profound change in mindsets”, stated the Baha’i International Community.
In her Nov 26, 2016 Keynote address, Diane Ala’i, representative of the Baha’i International Community to the United Nations Global summit on Religion, Peace and Security said:
“Building peaceful societies and safeguarding freedom of religion and belief depend on the abandonment of claims of exclusivity and finality by religious leaders…Living side by side is not enough. People of different faiths must learn to live together. We are finding that collective service to the common good is a powerful factor in dispelling misunderstandings between people.”
Bonnie Robertson is a member of the Baha’i Community and an Inclusive Leader. Bonnie thinks globally and acts locally to build bridges of welcome and inclusion within the Cowichan Region of Vancouver Island, BC where she lives. She builds inter-generational bridges of inclusion within the Baha’i Community and between children, youth and adults in all communities.
