The dimensions of diversity in the workplace range from work style and personality to gender, ethnicity, age, and race. Secondary workplace diversities include education, socioeconomics, and religion as well as proximity to the central office, functional level in the organization, and management and union influences. The aggregate blend of similarities and differences may also include behaviors, experiences, backgrounds, beliefs, values, and individual and organizational characteristics. Diversity may also be present among employees’ ages, gender, religion, cultural backgrounds, physical abilities and disabilities, and sexual orientation. Ideally, diverse workplaces include employees with varying characteristics in geographic location, political and religious beliefs, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background, education, and gender.
