The B!G Idea Dashboard > Team > Diverse together – Colaiste Bhride Carnew

Why as a team did you choose to focus on this challenge?

We chose to focus on this challenge as a team because it is a world wide problem and it affects many more people than you would think of. We researched statistics and we found out that 46% of people feels left out due to them being ‘different’.

What do you know now about the challenge that you didn't know before?

I found out a lot more statistics and information about diversity and inclusion while working in this project that i knew beforehand. i found out that older generations may feel left out more due to not being physically able to perform certain activities that others can. Also that diversity fosters more creativity and innovation in the workplace.

What have you learnt about your Hero?

Our hero is Lena she is a muslim women and she is constantly being discriminated against due to her being muslim. There are many stereotypes against muslim people such as that they are terrorists for example. She fights these stereotypes everyday.

If you could improve one thing for your Hero what would that be?

i would like to improve the way other people think of her and others like here and of her religion.

Ask your Mentor anything …. This is a chance to ask your Mentors a direct question relating to your Big Idea.
