As I was listening to Dr. David Matthews who is the president of the Kettering Foundation, I noticed that he asked a very interesting question. He asked “Why is there a diversity of participation in the Public Policy Workshop?” This question was interesting to me because I wondered the exact same thing. I think there is such diversity in this workshop because when discussing a subject as large and as broad as politics, one needs everyone’s opinion. A person needs to know how other people from different states as well as countries view politics. There are so many different views on this topic and it is very important to understand and learn from other people’s opinions. Therefore having diversity is a very good way to understand and learn different cultures.
