The Human Rights Commission developed the Diversity Lens (image at right) and the accompanying Diversity Lens brochure. Valuing individual diversity means reaching beyond stereotypical views of individuals and using the strengths and different perspectives that each person offers. The Diversity Lens is not just a reflection of you or me, but the collective us in our community and all of our values.
