Why diversity is is an integral part of growth

One of my favorite Television Series is "House of Cards", which tells about a man's quest for political power and role of his wife in helping him achieve his goal.

Now in its fourth season, the main Character Frank Underwood as depicted by Kevin Spacey is seeking reelection and during one of campaigns in college just before he was shot, he made these comments which struck my heart.

"A diversity of ideas makes us all wiser. True leadership is not running away from those who disagree with you, but embracing them".

Frank Underwood was ruthless in his political manipulation, he displayed both Machiavellian and Sun Tzu's strategic planning with regards to politics. But in all he did, knew the importance of working with opposition to achieve a common goal.

As a leader, you must work with those who disapprove of your methods, systems and strategies. The essence of leadership is to galvanize action for sustainable growth and development of everyone irrespective of which side of the divide we fall in. This is the goal of Diplomacy and Politics.

Model United Nations we seek to bridging the education gap while building global citizens. Model United Nations is an authentic simulation of the UN General Assembly, UN Security Council, or other multilateral body, which introduces students to the world of diplomacy, negotiation, and decision making.

At Model UN, students step into the shoes of ambassadors of countries that are members of the UN, from Argentina to Zimbabwe. 
The students, better known as “delegates”, debate current issues on the organization’s vast agenda. They prepare draft resolutions, plot strategy, negotiate with supporters and adversaries, resolve conflicts, and navigate the UN’s rules of procedure – all in the interest of resolving problems that affect the world.

Before playing out their ambassadorial roles in Model UN, students research the particular global problem to be addressed. The problems are drawn from today’s headlines. Model UN delegates learn how the international community acts on its concerns about peace and security, human rights, the environment, food and hunger, economic development, and globalization.

Model UN delegates also look closely at the needs, aspirations, and foreign policy of the country they will “represent” at the event. The insights they gain from their exploration of history, geography, mathematics, culture, economics, and science contribute to the authenticity of the simulations once the actual role-playing gets underway, and ensures a lively and memorable experience.

Model UN not only involves young people in the study and discussion of global issues, but also encourages the development of skills useful throughout their lives – skills including research techniques, writing, public speaking, problem-solving, conflict resolution, compromise, and cooperation.

The popularity of participating in Model UN has contributed to the rapid growth of this activity over the past several decades. Many Model UN participants are repeaters, since the spirit of these simulations creates an appétite for this activity more commonly known as “M-U-N Fever”.

In fact, quite a few of today’s leaders in law, government, business, and the arts participated in Model UN during their academic careers – from U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, to Chelsea Clinton and actor Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) and the present Secretary General of the UN.

As many states move to implement standards for global citizenship, Model UN is proving to be an innovative resource to prepare students for career and college success.
