Multiculturalism and Diversity in the Workplace
For this discussion activity, your scavenger hunt will consist of finding two examples where the organization and management excelled and took advantage of multiculturalism and diversity in a way that helps both the employee and the organization. Then provide two examples or experiences where an organization failed in this area. Remember these examples can come from any organization. If you do find applicable information on your own organization while working this discussion, please use it where applicable in your own SWOT analysis. These examples can be from current events, historical instances, or classic examples, in video or print.
Conduct a web search seeking two examples where you believe the organization embraced multiculturalism and diversity and was able to create an open and thriving work environment along with two examples where organizations failed to embrace these changes.
- Discuss what you found during your web search.
- Provide a description of how culture and diversity can and do affect all managers and organizations.
