April Diversity Calendar 2024 Highlights

World Autism Acceptance Day – April 2

This internationally-recognized day draws attention to people living with Autism globally. It is just one of seven official health-specific days that the United Nations recognizes. The acceptance of autism is the focus of autism rights advocates.

The neurodiversity paradigm is something that medical professionals and educators are bringing to life where the focus is acceptance of this community instead of the focus on the causes of the disease and suggestions for how this community should live.

Yazidi New Year – April 3

Also known as Sere Sal, this festival is celebrated by the Yazidi, a community with ancient roots across the Middle East. This day marks the beginning of a new year. On this day, they gather at sacred sites, perform religious rituals inviting blessings into their upcoming year, and perform traditional dances. It is a time of hope and unity while honoring their cultural identity throughout the world.

International Day of Pink – April 10

This worldwide awareness day hopes to educate the general public on the harmful effects of discrimination, bullying, and homophobia in the world. Wear pink to show solidarity with the commitment to promote a safe and inclusive world for all.

Earth Day – April 22

Today, let’s celebrate Mother Earth. Promote protecting the environment and advocate for sustainable living. This day serves as an important reminder of conservation, recycling, and action to protect the climate and our natural resources.

Passover – April 22

Passover, a significant Jewish holiday, is also observed in April. This eight-day festival commemorates the exodus of the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. Families gather to share Seder meals, read from the Haggadah, and reflect on themes of freedom and redemption. Passover is not just a historical commemoration but also a time for contemporary reflection on issues of freedom, justice, and human dignity.

International Girls in ICT Day – April 28

Today recognizes the importance of teaching girls about careers in Information and Communications Technology (ICT). Learning technical skills helps set up young girls and children alike to be independent. The future of the world and jobs is deeply rooted in technology.
