A chat about diversity, business, and more

I loved this chat with Temi of Amaris & Chaya Diverse Dolls. We talked about the importance of bringing diversity to children’s toy boxes – including diverse races, skin tones, heights, abilities, and more. Seeing ourselves reflected in the stories around us is vital at every age, because it helps us feel more seen, which helps to build a sense of belonging.

We talked about how vital building a solid foundation of identity in childhood is, so that when we experiment with our looks and our style later on it comes from a place of fun rather than a place of fear. It’s too easy to end up changing your identity to fit in if you aren’t yet solid on who you are.
