Diversity In the Work Place

             What exactly is Diversity? Diversity refers to human qualities that are different from our own and those of groups to which we belong; but that are manifested in other individuals and groups. Dimensions of diversity include but are not limited to: age, ethnicity, gender, physical abilities / qualities, race, sexual orientation, educational background, geographic location, income, marital status, military experience, parental status, religious beliefs, work experience, and job classification. Based on that definition, everyone can without a doubt vouch that at least one job, they have seen prejudice against someone. Even though we as a society have made tremendous lead way in embracing our differences and learning from them, there are still kinks in the rope that need to be undone. For example, take a look at some of the major fortune 500 companies. Look at the CEO's and Presidents. Not many females hold those positions. Matter of fact, almost 90% are held by men. It's not fair, but that's the way it is. Women in today's society are still trying to overcome the stereotype of a woman barefoot and pregnant, hanging clothes in the back yard, while dinners on the stove. In all actuality women bring a very unique prospective to the table of ideas. Since most companies depend on females buying their product its only logical in my view point to have a women in charge of selling to other females. Also, racism still exists. No matter how much we try to embrace our differences there is always going to be those couple of naive people that still think white is better than black. Instead of seeing color they need to look beyond and see the intelligence and determination. Some of the smartest people in history were black. One that comes to mind is George Washington Carver. Growing up, I was always told never judge a book by its cover. Which I still believe in to this day.
