Cultural Diversity Initiative
The purpose of the cultural diversity initiative is to help build a Forum 35 that represents the community we live in. This is done by promoting dialogue, discussion, and activities that expose our current membership to Baton Rouge's rich and diverse culture. With our enthusiasm and support we hope to also encourage those we meet to join us in our journey towards a Baton Rouge that embraces difference.
Blue Cross Blue Shield awarded the Cultural Diversity Committee with a grant to create and implement a bi-monthly conversations focused on diversity around Baton Rouge. Since its inception, we hosted several conversations ranging from "What Color is 3rd Street”, "One Latino’s Perspective”, "The Quality of Life of the LGBT Community” and many more. The committee has truly been inspired by the response of the community and look forward to developing new conversations centered focused on diversity.
The Cultural Diversity Project Committee has hosted and participated in several events including:
- Dealing with Dis-ease, A discussion on HIV/AIDS Awareness
- Southern University 2008 & 2009 Homecoming Parade
- Sunday in the Park Music Series-Shaw Center of the Arts (Downtown)
- Brotherhood & Sisterhood Dinner
- Baton Rouge Blues Week
- 100 Black Men
We look forward to partnering with others in the communities to foster diversity throughout the city of Baton Rouge.
