Diversity includes a number of important human characteristics that affect an individual’s values and opportunities and perceptions of themselves and others at work. These primary characteristics include, but are in no way limited to age, ethnicity, gender, ability, race, and sexual orientation. Diversity includes other important factors such as: geographic location, military experience, work experience, income, religion, first language, organizational role and level, communication style, family status, work style, and education. Diversity is more than EEO and affirmative action. Diversity is not just a commitment to women. Diversity is not just a commitment to people of color. Diversity is a commitment to employees and the entire business organization.
