What does 'diversity' mean to you? The answer may depend on your race

Aug 8, 2014 Full story: ECNmag 12

Diversity in the workplace has been a contentious issue for many employers. In May 2014, Google disclosed that 70% of its employees are male, and in terms of racial diversity, the company is 61% White, 30% Asian, 3% Hispanic and 2% Black.

Diversity to me means anti-segregation. It's original purpose was to de-segregate neighborhoods, jobs, schools, etcetera.

Yes, but desegregation means to destroy diversity. Diversity is the natural order of things, as people naturally support ONLY their kind until brainwashed otherwise and turned into sheep. You living in your place with your people and me being with my people preserves diversity. But if we all mix together, there will be no diversity at all. We will eventually look the same and be forced to act the same.

So promoting diversity is the sure way to destroy it. It is like my feelings on Net Neutrality. As long as everyone leaves the Internet alone and the government stays out of it, Net Neutrality exists by default.

Diversity means understanding.

Diversity means understanding a woman's need for maternity leave.
Diversity means being willing to hire someone older who's qualified.
Diversity is maintaining professionalism while doing customer service with someone who's first language might not be English.
Diversity means not drooling over some woman's workspace and making lewd comments.
Diversity is recognizing a common goal and achieving it.
Diversity is respecting a man's need for paternity leave.
Diversity is not flipping out when someone doesn't celebrate a popular holiday.
Diversity is a healthy curiosity about other people, their foods, and culture.
Diversity is understanding that people regardless of race, sexual orientation, gender, or disability have a right to work and sustain themselves in order to be productive members of society.

Yes, it's good to recognize and promote diversity on all levels. Everyone isn't the same, but that doesn't mean people won't have common goals.

Diversity means the downfall of a company and\or the destruction of a society. United, we stand. Divided, we fall.

Diversity is just one more spoke in the marxist \ lib wheel to destroy America from within.

The issue is White Americans only viewing other White Americans as Americans. Technically your PPL are Americans regardless of their physical traits. If ur ancestors viewed us all as simply American, there wouldn't be any diversity because everyone would see themselves as American as oppose to colors. You say diversity is hurting this Nation, so why continue labeling everyone by race?? The solution is simple but race is needed in order to insure a 'specific PPL' maintain social mobility in America.

If groups hyphenate their identity, or identify with their own culture to the exclusion of identifying as Americans, then how does diversity become conformity?

Diversity REQUIRES something from everyone, but some people are lazy. They'd rather stay hateful and ignorant by choice. Good for them. Meanwhile, the rest of us will keep moving forward, evolving. We have to. What doesn't evolve becomes extinct over time. Progress is on the side of people with open minds and ideas. Everyone else is just on the sidelines whining about what they see others doing. Over time, they too will become extinct. Ours is a unique society in a unique time.

Diversity comes in so many ways. Even a good stock portfolio needs to be diversified. A successful economy survives from diverse industries -- many people with many ideas and many talents. It's called growth. Again, some people don't grow beyond a certain point in they're lives. They can't see the need until THEY need something. Therefore, the success from any diversity isn't up to them. It's up to the knowledgeable movers, creators, innovators, and people with FREEDOM to work together.
