In the workplace context, the term 'Diversity' was once considered to relate only to racial and gender equality. Nowadays, a broader and more proactive interpretation considers the benefits that an organization can enjoy through the inclusion of a wide variety of people from different backgrounds, subgroups, and subcultures. Diversity in the workplace is about embracing and building on differences, and similarities, to enable growth. This learning path highlights the benefits of being part of a workplace where diversity is embraced, as well as the barriers that must be overcome in order to create such an environment. Finally, this learning path suggests strategies to help the individual become more aware of their own attitudes toward diversity, accepting of diverse cultures, people and ideas, and to become an advocate for diversity within the workplace by promoting it whenever possible.
