Chapter 1. Nine Ways to Put Stories to Work > Increasing Diversity Awareness

9.. Increasing Diversity Awareness

Stories are a natural way to make people more aware of diversity issues and needs, such as the following:

Fear of being awkward or making mistakes— People do not reach out to others because they feel they do not know how to act or what to say.
