Diversity is considered good for business, education and society in general because diversity makes the most of human resources, and enriches work and study environments. A diverse body of people can offer a wider perspective in virtually any situation.
Businesses and educational institutions most often agree that diversity creates an institution or company that is better equipped to deal with the global economy. It makes the best use of a diverse workforce, and is seen as a competitive advantage.
In an educational setting, diversity offers students a richer perspective on issues and concepts. Diversity also strengthens ties to the community, and offers all students the prospect of success.
