Schriever hosts Diversity Day

SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- Schriever Air Force Base Equal Opportunity Office hosted its annual Diversity Day celebration at the Fitness Center here Aug. 28. Upon entry, patrons received passports and flags representing various countries. The gymnasium was filled with the sights and smells of diverse cultures including Asia, Polynesia and Scandinavia. The celebration included live dance performances and music from different entertainers. (We had an opportunity to gather some feedback from some of the venders, patrons, and organizers in attendance at the event.)











Although Paula Krause, 50th Space Wing Sexual Assault Response Coordinator, has only visited Uganda once, she was so enamored with the culture she collected traditional garb, jewelry and trinkets that were showcased at this year's event. When speaking about the event Krause replied, "I think it's awesome! It's a great way to learn new cultures." (U.S. Air Force photo/Monique Fontenot)











When asked what she thought of this year's participation, Staff Sgt. Janée Tamayo, 21st Medical Group responded, "I'm so happy to see all the participation for this wonderful event." (U.S. Air Force photo/Monique Fontenot)











Cecilia Smith, 50th Space Wing Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office said, "The event seems to get better every year. This is our third time here and it has grown." (U.S. Air Force photo/Monique Fontenot)











Tech. Sgt. Maria Jurotich and Staff Sgt. Rondy Williams, both from 50th Space Communications Squadron  were in attendance. "Very educational, it's good for people to be exposed to different cultures," said Williams. (U.S. Air Force photo/Monique Fontenot)











We had an opportunity to speak with the event's two organizers, Capt. Valencia Gore, 2nd Space Operations Squadron and Capt. Charday Caminero, 4th Space Operations Squadron. Gore was asked how this year's event compares to last year. "It's difficult to compare, but we added more activities, expanded children interaction and increased the visual presentation to make the event look more like a destination."
