Introduction (4 Marks) Diversity and inclusion is the act of enhancing mutual respect and understanding by accepting, recognising, and valuing each other's perspectives, experiences, and contributions. An example can be the conscious effort by corporations to recruit employees of different ethnicities, genders, age groups, or disabilities. This allows diverse ideas to flourish, promotes continuous innovation and helps firms to better serve their diverse client base. Body (8 Marks) There are several dimensions to diversity and inclusion. Firstly, individual diversity refers to personal characteristics such as race, ethnicity, age, gender, religious beliefs, physical abilities, and socio-economic status. These represent the most visible layers of diversity. Secondly, there's internal diversity, which includes inherent traits like race, sexual orientation, nationality, and physical capabilities. These are unchangeable and form one’s core identity. Next, external diversity includes personal choices and life experiences such as religion, education level, marital status, geographic location, life experiences, and personal preferences. These provide perspective that could enrich the workplace with various viewpoints. Fourthly, organisational diversity encapsulates various roles within a company, work style, and departmental membership. Having a variety of roles is crucial to foster creativity and innovation. Lastly, world view diversity is a person's mental model of the world which is shaped by collective experiences. By recognising and appreciating different world views, companies can promote understanding and harmony. Conclusion (2 Marks) Promoting diversity and inclusion is vital for both moral and business reasons. Simply put, diverse workplaces are more competitive, innovative and reflective of our increasingly globalised world. Secondly, expectations about the standard of corporate behaviour are rising. Stakeholders increasingly demand that companies foster environments that embrace diversity and inclusion. Therefore, it's not just responsible – it's strategically sound to advance diversity and inclusion. References (1 Mark) 1. Robbins, S. P., Coulter, M., & DeCenzo, D. A. (2017).
