The paper opens with a brief discussion of workplace diversity and the reason or purpose for its development. Pulling from two sources and a case study, it describes ways in which others have addressed the changes in the field. Largely discussing diversity in a hospital, or medical field, it takes a look at how human resources and directors can facilitate issues or problems with fellow employees, patients, and others.

From the Paper:

"Given the situation and its circumstances, the HR manager might take the following actions: hire Dr. Soysa despite the search committee's disapproval, hire one of the male nurses as mentioned in the case study, or reopen the search for the nursing director position.
"Each of these actions has different implications and consequences on the HR manager, the candidate, the other employees, the hospital in general, and mostly its patients. The obvious legal aspect that characterizes this situation is represented by workplace discrimination."
