Diversity is an important aspect of any organization. It is a source of enrichment and opportunity that can bring a wealth of benefits. Assembling talent from diverse cultural backgrounds helps develop a team with a broad knowledge, varied viewpoints, and fosters innovation.
But diversity can also create challenging situations. Team members may feel inhibited or self-conscious working with people from different cultures.
