Diversity in the Workplace: Cons
Stereotypes can lead to biases

Culturally diverse people have different opinions

Conflicts from diversity can result in lost productivity and negative emotions
1. How does the interdependence of people make their contributions more valuable?

2. As we become better acquainted with people of different backgrounds, does our fear and suspicion of them diminish? Do we learn to better appreciate their abilities?

3. What is the benefit of allowing- even encouraging-different groups to preserve their uniqueness while, at the same time, getting people of various backgrounds to work together for a common purpose?

4. How does the prejudicial treatment of one person endanger the rights of all persons?

5. What can each of us do to combat prejudice against groups to which we don’t belong?
