Appreciating Diversity

Thomas with map

Thomas loves to know where his staff are originally from.

His mother told me about this interest. Then she hatched an idea: “maybe Thomas could track where his staff come from on a map of the world”.

I immediately wanted to get in on this. Like Thomas I share an interest in where our staff come from. So Thomas and I decided we’d turn this into a map seeking adventure that included a bus ride to downtown Seattle, lunch at a Mexican restaurant and a visit to the crown jewel of all map stores: Metsker Maps at Pike Place Market.

Thomas now has his map displayed at his home. Seven staff are from Gambia, six from Kenya, three each from Sierra Leone and the Democratic Republic of Congo, and one each from Cameroon, Ethiopia, Ghana, and Haiti.
