We all know that the strongest teams are made up of collaborative individuals with diverse experiences, skills, and perspectives. Celebrating common interests, as well as differences, allows us to unite and fully experience one another’s authenticities. With that in mind, we want to provide a space to learn more about the cultures, languages, religions, and holidays that make the world go round!
