The Path to Women, LBGT, Minorities Equality & Rights

“But ultimately we all pay a price. If our coworkers cannot be themselves in the workplace, they certainly cannot be their best selves. When that happens, we undermine people’s potential and deny ourselves and our society the full benefits of those individuals’ talents.” - Timothy D. Cook Chief Executive Officer of Apple 

Everyday I take great pleasure in the sight of the diversity. The sight of the multitude of faces and culture, animals, views, that our world offers. Yet I still wonder whether when one group of a demographic dominates a sections of society it is actually helping mankind or holding the human race back.

I wonder if dominance is simply: Those who succeed gain majority of the available resources, and achieve long run supremacy by using their advantages to build greater strength and possibly protecting their supremacy from the threats & entry of outsiders. A lot like business.

Is it a nature or nurture behavior? I don’t know however I will not stand for it. I will no longer stand for a world where we have to beg and persuade people in power & influence to see the value of a person regardless of their gender, sexual orientation or skin color. I will stand for a world where individuals just decide to take their money elsewhere or start a business that represents the values they want. I will stand for a world that encouraged universal values as a way to live life and run our businesses.

The more I read about technological advances that are eventually going to become mainstream, I also wonder which demographic would benefit from the wealth and which ones will be fighting for mere bread crumbs. An example, the eventual use of algorithms & data by governments to tell individuals how exactly to live their lives.

Our world is about to radically change, in 3 years, and I hope to encourage women, LGBT, & minorities to work together to break barriers that exist in ourselves so we can breakdown the external barriers in this world.

Your rights are worth the fight. If you know what you are worth, go get what you are worth. I think people don’t have to give up or become discourage or become victimized because if we all stop the fight for fair chance to succeed, then we are nothing but slaves. However I’ve also come to realize that some people are built to be directors of life and some become spectators of life.

So how do I think we rise above the barriers: together we conquer our fears, believe in our abilities, take more risk, boost our confidence, boost our self image, manage criticism, eliminate jealousy & envy, sacrifice, be in the right relationships, learn to communicate, educate ourselves, money is not everything, share home-domestic & community responsibilities, admire the right role models, support each other, stand together, learn from successful people, etc
