This week, show us how being inclusive makes a team great.

Over the many years of playing sports, I have learned the concept of team and what it means to be a part of one. Generally, a team refers to a group of individuals coming together to reach a common goal. With a sports team, it would be winning against another team or a business team completing a project together. As a healthcare professional, I work independently to deliver outcomes; however, on the grand scale, I am on an interdisciplinary team with other health practitioners to reach a common goal for the client.

In terms of my experiences with playing on sports teams, I have noticed a lot of diversity and inclusion. I have also noticed that when my teams were successful, EveryBODY worked brought a unique skill set and embraced individual differences to achieve the end goal. For example, this is a picture of a time I played in a gay volleyball tournament with a bunch of amazing friends – a big contributor to the success on the court was because of our team’s inclusiveness of differing heights, body sizes, cultures, and beliefs.

For this week’s challenge, take a moment and look around, what does a team look like to you or your community? Take a photo, embrace the awesomeness in things that stand out from the norm. Good luck! Make sure you use the hashtag #PEB17, #PEBYVR and #PEBteam.
