C2C – “DIGNITY…cannot be taken away.” Nelson Mandela

C2C – “DIGNITY…cannot be taken away.” Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela said, “DIGNITY is a birthright – it is within us all at birth.  It cannot be taken away.”  He told this to conflict resolution specialist, Donna Hicks, when discussing his survival techniques as a 27 year prisoner in South Africa. It is different from respect – which is earned over time.

However, there are times when we give away our dignity or it is challenged and even violated, by others.

This is the first of a NEW SERIES of C2C videos focusing on Dignity with the creator of The Dignity Model, Donna Hicks, PhD, from the Weatherhead Center or International Affairs at Harvard University. After Donna lays the foundation, other professionals will contribute to the discussion.

Understanding Dignity – our own and that of others can be the foundation for Leadership, Giving and Receiving Feedback, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion learning and Managing and Reconciling Conflict.

Whoa!  Dignity discussions will definitely challenge your perspective about yourself, others, and the world around you.
