Social Cohesion-
Social cohesion is another example of a benefit of diversity, as people from different races can mix with one another, and learn new things from each other, which they didn't already know about the world. Also, people will learn to accept each other for their differences, and this means that there will be less aggression and tension in communities.

Diversity can also encourage tolerance, as people will learn to be tolerant of other people, so that people can live happily with people and accept everybody for their differences. This means that there are fewer disagreements between people in society, and people won’t judge others as much, as if a society which wasn't diverse at all. This is because, people will value everyone’s contribution to society, so that there will be less prejudice, and more fairness and equality.
