Good morning class,
It is important to be diverse in both the personal and professional setting for many reasons. Bucher (2015) indicated that being diverse can increase your skills, empowerment, and promotes growth. Both nature and nurture influence how diverse we are, who we surround ourselves with, and the knowledge of other cultures. I grew up in a diverse culture surrounded by Hispanics, African American, Greeks, and Italians. Of the categories listed, the easiest one to name was Latino/Hispanic. Growing up in a Hispanic household, my family spoke about famous Hispanics such as Ellen Ochoa and taught us to be proud of our culture. The most difficult to name was Muslim, it was not until the 9/11 attacks that people started discussing and analyzing this category. This assignment has shown that although there are many categories, most will only be able to identify those that they have learned, surrounded with, and we are not being taught to be as diverse as we should be.
Many companies strive to be diverse to ensure that they are not discriminating or being racist against any cultural group. Bucher (2015) indicated that to be more diverse it is important to follow some strategies that will be beneficial for the development, such as: education, multicultural setting, experiences, and be modest. As individuals, people are continuously growing and learning about different cultures specially in the United States where people come with different backgrounds, cultures, and skills. Jain and Pareek (2020) indicated that it is to the company’s benefit to hire people from with different backgrounds because it can lead to aggressive advantages in different skills such as creativity and problem solving. Having different people will have different opinions and points of view that can increase productivity. Jain and Pareek (2020) further indicated that managers should be open minded to ensure that the employees feel accepted and can avoid issues.

Here is an outline of individuals tracked down in the given classifications:

As I started exploring notable individuals from every classification, I understood the most straightforward type to name people from was men. The justification behind this, I accept, is that men have a more prominent presence in legislative issues and business, dwarfing ladies, which could make sense for why men are more unmistakable at the highest point of the stepping stool. Additionally, Banaji et al. (2021), breaking down overall perspectives associated with orientation, showed that ladies are underrepresented in fields where achievement is accepted to rely upon knowledge and abilities (Banaji et al., 2021). I think this is because of the absence of portrayal of people from these classifications in the media. Although I could find data about individuals referenced previously, I had no clue about who they were or their job in United States history.
This exercise showed me that a singular’s consciousness of the variety around them and how one perceives the presence, or absence of, of people of various races, sexual orientations, identities, financial situations, and sexual directions comes from your childhood, the way of life that shapes you, and schooling, both formal and casual. For instance, as a worldwide understudy from Venezuela, I have needed to bargain for quite a long time with migrant guidelines continually evolving. Thusly, I can connect with and perceive well-known people who support migrants’ privileges. Besides, this exercise additionally showed me the significance of praising variety and training small kids to regard and esteem it. Each individual is novel, and we should see the value in that qualification.
