Diversity – The result of an increased variety of employees in the workplace who are diverse in racial, ethnic, religious or gender composition. Many employers now recognize that this changing composition of the work-force is inevitable and that diverse experiences, backgrounds and attitudes can strengthen an organization. Diversity in the work-force can also provide greater opportunity for the organization to expand its customer base within a modern multiethnic marketplace. Diversity has also proven to be a source of potential conflict in organizations that have not encouraged respect for individual differences and tolerance.
