Inclusiveness is all about being open-minded and respecting others’ opinions. An assembly was organized to build consciousness around this in the Neev community. This assembly was an eye opener for most of us, particularly when we were conducting an activity. We noticed that people were laughing or cringing at what others were saying, without even realizing that it amounted to bullying. They would even try to convince people not to share their opinions. When we explicitly pointed this out, the audience came to this realization and finally, the goal of the assembly was met.
We feel that the students have walked out of the assembly hall more aware of their actions and willing to put in an effort to be open-minded to differences, resulting in a happier, safer community.
