Diversity in The Workplace
Social diversity is all of the ways that people within a single culture are set apart from each other. Elements of social diversity can include ethnicity, lifestyle, religion, language, tastes and preferences. In general, ideas of social diversity are expanding, in part because global interaction and communication are becoming easier and more common. Worldwide, the standard of living is generally improving too. Scholars believe that there is a correlation between healthier lifestyles and the willingness of people to accept diversity as a positive element within culture. The more people are exposed to certain elements of culture, the more likely those elements

Margaret Mead, an American cultural anthropologist, had this to say about diversity “If we are to achieve a richer culture, rich in contrasting values, we must recognize the whole gamut of human potentialities, and so weave a less arbitrary social fabric, one in which each diverse human gift will find a fitting place”. As school, work, and our neighborhoods become increasingly diverse, we must amend our current way of thinking to be considerate of multiple cultures that are now present in our daily lives. As I set out on a quest to observe this diversity, I will evaluate the ethnicity, race, gender, and age of the people within my neighborhood, school, and work. In addition, I will

Very seldom has the management taken proactive action to prevent diversity problems before they occur. By understanding the importance of managing diversity and the impact of cultural diversity on organization are critical to any managers and supervisors today.
The organizations have not always addressed social problems head on. The symptoms are treated but not the causes. Thus, the problems never really disappear. In the past, the management gave diversity attention only when necessary. The result was temporary and usually created a backlash of resentment.

There is a common view among scholars and business people that diversity in teams will create a direct increase in the diversity of prospective considered in problem solving, but this is not the case (Mannix, 32). Research over the past fifty years has identified and focused on two main ideological views about the affects of diversity in teams, “similarity attraction” and “value in diversity”. The “similarity attraction” hypothesis argues that team members are less likely to accept another’s strengths because it creates an “us-them” distinction within the group. In this model diversity relates negatively to group performance due to the relational conflicts within the group

The Chancellor's Committee on Diversity defines Diversity as: "The variety of experiences and perspective which arise from differences in race, culture, religion, mental or physical abilities, heritage,age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and other characteristics." So why is it when many people think of diversity, they think first of ethnicity and race, and then gender? Diversity is much broader.

Sociologist Brown defined a family as “a group of people who are related by kinship ties: relatives of blood, marriage or adoption” (Brown, 1998).

There are many different types of family which include Nuclear, Cereal Packet, Extended, Single Parent, and Reconstituted. Over the years family life has become more diverse. There is a lot of evidence that there is no one particular family type in Britain.
