A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE® InstituteAs a leading provider of anti-bias education and diversity training programs, the Anti-Defamation League’s A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE® Institute recognizes that attitudes and beliefs affect actions, and that each of us can have an impact on others and ultimately, on the world in which we live.The origins of the A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE Institute date back to 1985, when ADL and WCVB-TV in Boston initiated the A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE campaign, a series of education and media-driven programs designed to compact prejudice and create effective tools to address these issues in the classroom and community. The campaign’s immense success led to ongoing programs in Boston and 28 U.S. cities and several national awards including a Peabody, Gabriel, and Scripps-Howard.
Our Goals: The Institute’s programs and resources are designed to help participants:
• Recognize bias and the harm it inflicts on individuals and society• Identifying our own bias• How our own bias can prevent us from fully participating in the world around us• How to respond to situations respectfully & responsibly• Build understanding of the value and benefits of diversity• improve intergroup relations• confront racism, anti-Semitism and all other forms of bigotry• And how to present this learning to our peers
