In this article, the writer points out that being able to manage diversity in the workplace, or anywhere else, is not always that easy to do and is often more complex and complicated than it would seem to an outside observer. The writer notes that the review of the literature provides several different things. First, it shows why diversity management is needed and looks at some of the major focuses of literature, generally since 1993. Second, it indicates that there are differences between managing diversity, affirmative action, and equal employment opportunities. Third, the main part of the literature review simply discusses the general literature on managing diversity and what has been said regarding the issue, so that readers can better understand what has been said regarding managing diversity, the pros and cons of it, and other issues that surround it. Fourth and finally, the review of the literature looks at diversity on a global level, so that the researcher can indicate what other countries are doing about managing diversity and how these countries feel about this issue. Managing diversity in England, Europe, South Africa, and Australia is addressed in this section.

From the Paper:"Discussing the Caucasian culture is somewhat complex because there are so many different cultures that make it up. Generally, if someone is considered 'white' they are a Caucasian, but their background, where they come from, and their religious and other beliefs might be very different from someone else that is also considered Caucasian. Because of this, there is no specific way to discuss the traditions, beliefs, and values of the Caucasian culture. What can be noted, however, is that Caucasian people overall seem to have less strong family responsibility and seem to be more open to discussing various issues with others than are the American Indian, Vietnamese, and Asian cultures. This is but one short and simple example of the diversity that could be faced within a workplace."
