recognizing and managing diversity

  1. 1.  The state of having many different forms, types, ideas, races, cultures, etc. in a group or organization.
  2. 2.  Diversity in personal values often leads to conflict in the workplace, especially when it comes to contentious political issues, religious intolerance or longstanding social prejudice like sexism and racism. Conflicts may also threaten workplace morale and productivity.
  3. 3.   “recognition and valorization of individual differences” Understanding that individual is unique along the dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, or other ideologies.
  4. 4.   Is the exploration of these differences in a safe, positive, and nurturing environment. Understanding each other and moving beyond simple tolerance in embracing and celebrating the rich dimensions of diversity in each individual, as opposed to a pure compliance to equality.
  5. 5.  Students’ differences could consist of their reading level, athletic ability, cultural background, personality, religious beliefs, etc.
  6. 6.     Take the time to learn about your students’ background, interests, and learning style. Allow time for the students to learn about each other and gain an appreciation for the diversity they bring to the classroom. Bring in different people to the class as resources that students might be able to connect with. Never tolerate bullying, teasing and other put – down behavior at any time in the classroom.
