Diversity in the Workplace
In this week’s Discussion, you thought about democracy in the workplace. For this Assignment, you will consider how democratic principles in the workplace are related to and might be promoted by diversity. Diversity has different meanings; the particular meaning held by an organization may shape that organization in a variety of ways. Most organizations profess to value diversity in the workforce, and employers view the variety of talents and ideas that a diverse labor pool brings to the job as an economic asset. Diversity may, however, produce more than just economic benefits for an organization. One way to better understand diversity is to think about which aspects of diversity are related to democratic principles. Another way to approach diversity is to look at which democratic principles are promoted in your own organization through diversity. As you consider the concept of diversity, take note of underlying aspects that may advance democracy in the workplace.
