Cross Cultural Diversity .jpg

What do you mean by cultural diversity?  Cultural diversity is about appreciating that society is made up of many different groups with different interests, skills, talents and. needs. It also means that you recognise that people in society can have differing religious beliefs and sexual orientations to you.


By Josie Whitehead

Cultural Diversity is Worth Recognition

Employed within those murky depths

      Of factories and mills,

Quite lost in toil, the workers

      Had no time to *clamber hills.

The riches went to mill owners –

      The ones enjoying wealth -

A far, far cry from working folk

     Who suffered from ill health.


City buildings, black from smoke,

     Bowed down their heads in shame,

For smoking chimneys, working hours

     And wool looms were to blame.

Then rising, like the phoenix bird,

     Discarding ash and dirt,

Bradford lifts its head with pride,

     Its new image to exert.


‘City of Culture’ - Hopes were high,

     And Bradford's now so proud.

This city's on the nation’s stage,

     Its voice both clear and loud.

Cultural diversity

     Has flourished over years

And Bradford's won this title

     With hardly any fears.


Cross-cultural in character,

     This city ventured forth

To secure a title, rightly so,

     Which celebrates the north.

This phoenix bird has flown its nest,

     To soar our northern skies

And cultural diversity,

      Has won this place a prize.
