Managing Diversity in the Work Place
Diversity management recognizes individual differences and demands respect for all cultures, gender, sexual orientations, age, religious/political beliefs, physical abilities or ideologies, and races.
There should be a strong emphasis on communication.
There needs to be a clearly-defined set of guidelines that everyone is familiar with and these need to be implemented in a fair and equitable way.
Invest in diversity training.
Start with yourself and be mindful of others.
A diverse team may take longer to start producing results, but the variety of ideas and skill-sets they bring to the table will make it more successful in the long term.
