Nguyen Bui OB 321 Research paper #2 August 4, 2011 Diversity Reality at BYU Diversity has long been a common issue in the U.S work force, and for me personally, it is always an interesting topic to research. In my last paper, I had the opportunity to make a thorough research of how diversity would affect teamwork in working environment and harvested some valuable insights from a research report of the Research Diversity Network.

In addition, these students will be getting into business fields, such as finance, accounting, marketing, information system, etc in the future and their contribution to the teamwork would probably be substantial.
