US ambassador in Armenia celebrates diversity in LGBT inclusive video blog: “Diversity is Strength”

Good to see the US ambassador Heffern stressing the importance of Diversity and devoting to the topic his latest video blog.

He speaks of importance of inclusivity and tolerance to minorities, inclusive religious, LGBT, and gender equality.

“Diversity is a source of our strength.”

“By being more inclusive and embracing differences among us, we all become more united and resilient”.

Referring to the 'American Dream', he speaks of importance of equal opportunities, regardless of race, colour, gender, religion, economic background and sexual preference.

“And tolerance of minorities, including religious and sexual minorities, is not only the right thing to do, it makes everyone stronger”.

He salutes champions of diversity in the US and pledges to continue working with Armenian partners having that same goal in mind.

“Բազմազանությունը ուժի աղբյուր է”, concludes the ambassador in Armenian.
