Political Rhetoric Impacts Diversity & Inclusion 

We've all heard the old adage, "sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me."  Well, the reality is: that is not true.  Ask those who grew up in the "builders" or the "baby boomer" generation - "a person's word is their bond", which in essence means that failing to keep one's words could lead to a fractured relationship.  To often we forget our words can lead to unfortunate outcomes, especially in today's political climate.

If you're a politician seeking office or re-election, the rhetoric you speak can severely impact your campaign, costing you votes and, possibly, an election.  Ask the many Islamic-Americans offended by Mr. Trump's comments about banning Muslims from entering the United States; how many votes may have been lost?

Perhaps the most critical damage for a politician, or to a political campaign, occurs when the words spoken by a candidate creates a cultural divide throughout the electorate.  There are many politicians and political campaigns out of touch with the voting public and who suffer the ill-fated mistake of presuming that their comments will be forgotten -  we can help!
