10 Examples of Workplace Diversity

10 Examples of Workplace Diversity


There are many examples of workplace diversity that leaders and employees overlook but that can benefit everyone in their organization, including individual’s:

  • Life experience.
  • Thinking style.
  • Socio-economic situation.
  • Work ethic.
  • Worldview.
  • Cultural background.
  • Education.
  • Physical appearance.
  • Communication style.
  • Skills.

Each of these items offers leaders and fellow employees the opportunity to learn more about another person and to use their unique perspective to improve the workplace. The trap we fall in is that we try to stuff people in a predetermined box rather than learning about who they really are and using their talents to build stronger, more diverse workplaces.

What would you add to this list?
