Chapter 7 Describe the projected future diverse workforce. The U.S. workforce will become more diverse by 2010. Describe diversity and diversity management. Diversity refers to any perceived difference among people: age, race, religion, functional specialty, profession, sexual orientation, geographic origin, lifestyle, tenure with the organization, or position, and any other perceived difference.
