From the Paper:

"Diversity has been an important and highly sought after quality in organizations over the past twenty years. In some sense it has become the holy grail of organizational efficiency and awarded almost mythical status as a panacea for a lack of organizational vision and creativity. Diversity programs have been instituted in companies and organizations as diverse as Allstate is to Canon ("Diversity", 1998). Almost every organization, public or private, makes some attempt to address diversity its workforce. Diversity in the workforce is most often equated with racial and cultural dimensions and the development of these differences in an equitable and productive manner (Thomas & Ely, 2001). In all instances, diversity training and the development of diversity is meant to both improve the work environment as well as the underlying performance quotient of the organization."
