Week 3, Activity 2 Seeking out difference

Building on your insights in this week’s learning journal, some time thinking about someone either a) in your organisation, b) in your community, or c) in another organisation that you think offers a very different perspective on an issue you think your organisation could help to address. Ask that person for their view, emphasising that they can help stretch your thinking and enrich your perspective as a practitioner. Write about your experiences here and then comment on the posts of two other learners.
