2021 brought new challenges, but it also demonstrated the power of resilience. To counter our negativity bias as we reflect on the past year, we curated a list of 21 Things to Celebrate from 2021. 

In this list, we highlight Minnesota community members and organizations; media that shifted our world outlook; quotes we held close; and more celebrations that impacted us. 

We hope this list helps you remember collective and individual moments of joy, growth, and celebration from 2021. 

Helping hands

Do I belong here?

When we walk into a room, we automatically assess the environment to see if we belong. Will I be seen for all of who I am? Will my voice be heard? Will my contributions be valued? Will I be treated with respect and equity?

AMAZEworks supports healthy identities, respect across differences, and connected communities by creating the conditions for belonging and equity in schools, communities, and organizations.
