The Danger of a Single Story

This video by novelist Chimamanda Adichie shares a powerful message that when we hear only a single story about another person or country, we risk a critical misunderstanding. She shares examples of how a single story can paint an incomplete picture and can rob people of their humanity. A recent Community of Practice about building a diverse workforce found this video to deliver an important personal and professional message.
