Answer the following questions and then discuss as a class.

  1. True or False: Encouraging diversity is the responsibility of managers and employees.
  2. Why would a mentor program be a good way to encourage diversity in a team?
  3. How does a company as a whole represent diversity?
  4. If a company hires people from many different cultures and races, does that make it diverse? Why or why not?

Solution:

  1. True
  2. Pairing individuals with different skills together is a great way to learn from each other.
  3. Individuals representing different cultures, ages, genders, and races must have roles throughout the company at all levels.
