–Everett Rogers CULTURE Queen's "A Night at the Opera" = Diverse record
Radiohead = Diverse sound of all albums

- do not presume or assume anything about anyone Diversity is more than demographics such as age or ethnicity, and includes different education levels, skills and abilities, and personal responsibilities, and even hair color. Collective Wisdom can help you adapt to a variety of situations EXAMPLE: Companies can address a wider target market when they have a diverse staff. They have exposure to more customer pools, and they have the workforce to help them target that audience. “You think the only people who are people
are people who look and think like you
but if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
you’ll learn things you never knew you never knew” STEREOTYPES

You chose what you put out for the world to see. However, there are many stereotypes when
it comes to sports.
How can we avoid making judgements of skill based on race? or gender? The Olympics from article about London Olympics " Of course, Latinos weren't the only ones who sought to find cultural connections with the Olympic athletes. Women, African Americans, Asian-Americans, and LGBT athletes served as role models as well. And with her black, Puerto Rican, Filipino, and Japanese heritage, gymnast Kyla Ross is just one of the many multiracial, multiethnic members of Team USA that serves as a role model for a growing multiracial, multiethnic reality that is America today." Kyla Ross Music Industry - There are many genres of music
- Culture influences music
~ have different instruments and scales
~ subject of the material
- Bands change up their sound to appeal
to the changing market With the Beatles, 1963 Sgt. Peppers, 1967 vs. " no offense " Food Industry - Imagine eating the same food every day - Diverse cultures have their own
"food palate" based on resources
- America's "melting pot" has
diversified our food since our founding "I'm feeling Mexican today" we have developed a unique habit of craving different types of food... Over 4500 restaurants in Chicago, representing: - Chinese - Spanish
- Korean - Greek
- Ukrainian - Irish
- Polish - Italian
- French - Ethiopian and many, many more cultures - Fine Artists use various mediums
and art forms to express ideas
- There are performing and fine artists in every country http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/diversity-in-art-llc.html It takes high levels of emotional intelligence for a community to handle diversity appropriately. All of us must be self aware, have a respect and tolerance for all, and avoid offensive behavior and stereotyping. Diversity is beyond meeting a company’s quota for a variety of employees.

Diversity means change, it means options and choices, it means difference. We must use our differences to bring us together, to find a common ground Though We Are Diverse We Are One Some words you may not think are offensive but are: - fag or dyke for Homosexual
