Andrew Churey BUAD 208 Written Assignment #2 Diversity in the Workforce Question: Workforce diversity is a term we hear about frequently. The work force has moved from a primarily   white male workforce to a workforce including women, various ethnic groups, people of color, and aging   workers. Describe the impact of diversity on businesses today and how you think it will impact a few years into   the future. In your description try to go beyond the impact described in the book and imagine how business will   be impacted by this major change. This written assignment is to demonstrate the understanding of the impact of cultural diversity on  companies today and how future business will be affected. Workplace diversity refers to the many different  people that make up an organization. Diversity in the work place consists of race, age, gender, ethnic groups,  education and etc. America has become a country consisting of many diversity groups that play a major role in  our society’s organizations. Each group provides a different style that adds character to our nation, such as  music, food, sports and etc., which is all incorporated into businesses one way or another. Some other nations  follow in the same movement of allowing different diversity groups to participate in their workforce. Workplace  diversity has impacted many different nations’ organizations today and will impact future organization in the  future. Diversity in the workplace today has had a major impact on organizations.  Many before in our nation  were concerned of letting certain diversity groups be involved in the workplace, consisting of mainly factories  and farms. Now today, companies have changed and created bigger organizations that consist of many  different diversity groups. The change was due to the many benefits that these groups add to a company.  These benefits still consist today and allow organizations to expand on ideas for products.  There are many benefits that contributed to our business today. For an organization to be successful  and competitive, it relies on the ability to accept diversity into their workplace. The employment of different
