Walk to Embrace Diversity

The Diversity Walk takes place on March 18th, and like every year the date selected is intended to coincide as closely as possible with March 21st: the UN International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. The 2015 Diversity Walk was titled ‘Walk to End Racial Discrimination’. This year we have shifted the theme, with the label of  ‘Walk to Embrace Cultural Diversity’.
