ESSAY Q 1 Diversity: 2 ADVANTAGES: 1. Diversity is valuable because it increases the amount of creativity With a heterogenous group, there are different backgrounds, different education levels, different perspectives – people will all bring different POVs and opinions to the table 2. Diversity enhances problem solving The divergence of viewpoints makes for complex thinking and weighing out the different ideas that are presented more thorough If the group was homogenous, there wouldn’t be debate – now they have to think about the issue more thoroughly to reach a decision based on different viewpoints The constructive conflict and debate leads to higher level outcomes 3 DISADVANTAGES 1. Diversity causes social divisions Similarity-attraction theory means that people tend to be attracted to those that they believe have the same attitudes, values, beliefs as themselves Also applies to surface level attributes Members of culturally diverse groups are less likely to like each other

    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.
