Diversity Calendar:
Thriving in a Diverse Community?
It’s complicated.  There are way too many holidays and religious days to remember.  And they impact scheduling and planning more than you might think.  Right, there are the statutory holidays…  9 or 10 days a year.  But, in 2013, on our multicultural calendar we flag 43 different days as “schedule alerts” (days on which some employees might take time off from work to celebrate or commemorate the day).  Fully 30 weeks of the year 2013 will be impacted by some kind of national, cultural or religious holiday or event.  That’s more than ½ of the year!

So, get proactive; get in front of it. Our Multicultural Calendar gives you the information you need at a glance. The calendar is increasingly popular with schools, corporations, universities, banks, hospitals, governments, social service agencies, and families.  In addition to purchasing paper wall calendars, more and more organizations are embedding the electronic version of our calendar on their organizational intranets.

The 2013 calendar, our 20th edition, includes…

  • Holy days AND cultural festivals      for each faith / nationality with descriptions
  • Key religious days highlighted as      schedule alerts for event planning and work schedules
  • United Nations days
  • One-page table of religious days      for quick reference
  • 12.5″ x 19.5″ wall      calendar with 12 colorful, original ethnic artworks
  • It’s a perfect corporate gift,      attractive “eye candy” visible all year long by employees,      customers, and key organizational stakeholders

The 2013 calendar, “Water Carriers“, is the 20th edition of this superb, high quality calendar.

Each year the Multicultural Calendar chooses a theme to reiterate the message that even though we are all different, we are still the same. The Calendar focuses on what we have in common even though we come from diverse cultures and different parts of the world. Throughout our 20 years of producing the Calendar, we continue to be surprised at the similarities in themes of cultural festivals and religious days around the world. When we look at and share our similarities, we create the space for conversations from which acceptance, respect and flexibility emerge. The theme of the 2013 Multicultural Calendar is Water Carriers.

Like the earth, the human body is 70% water. The need for water transcends all barriers of race, religion or colour. Less than 1% of the Earth’s water is available for human consumption. Water carriers are as old as humanity itself and we have found that in cultures around the world, there are both common and unique methods of collecting this precious liquid.

United Nations has designated 2013 as ‘International Year of Water Cooperation’. Nearly one in five people or 1.1 billion men, women and children have no access to fresh water. A staggering 4 billion people lack adequate sanitation. Our hope is to bring to your awareness the water shortage we all face on this planet. As well, we encourage you to look for workable solutions which can be incorporated into your daily routine to conserve water not only for ourselves, but also for the generations that will follow.

Our colorful and informative calendar is an attractive, constantly visible reminder of hundreds of multicultural, religious, national and diversity related holidays and observances.
