Leaders Promoting 2 The world's growing globalization requires more interaction amongst people from diverse cultures, beliefs, and backgrounds than ever before. People no longer live and work in an ignorant marketplace; they are now part of a worldwide economy with competition coming from nearly every continent. In order to become more profitable, organizations need diversity to become more inventive and open to change. Capitalizing on workplace diversity has become an important issue for management today. I intend to show that with the known taken from this course, I can help promote more diversity in the workplace going forward. Leaders and managers need to conform more to the ever-changing landscape of employees in the today’s workforce. Managing diversity remains a notable organizational challenge, managers must learn the managerial skills needed in a multicultural work environment. Leaders and managers must be prepared to advise themselves and others within their organizations to value multicultural differences in both associates and customers so that everyone is treated with character. Diversity issues are now considered important and are estimated to become even more important in the future due to increasing differences in the U.S. population. Companies need to focus on diversity and look for ways to become totally inclusive organizations because diversity has the potential of yielding greater productivity and competitive advantages (SHRM, 1995). Stephen G. Butler, believes that diversity is an invaluable competitive asset that America cannot afford to ignore (Robinson, 2002).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
