I recently conducted a Cross-Cultural workshop for Fortune 500 on their top 20 leaders and one of the opening statements I shared with them was the popular understanding of diversity usually in the U.S refers to differences of color, ethnic origin, gender, sexual orientation or religious preferences, age, and disabilities. But what does it mean to you as a leader? How do you support diversity strategies? Do they really work?
I wanted to start off today's blog entry with a very interesting article I read this morning while eating my breakfast at a hotel lobby in Houston. The article was titled, "Diversity grows as majority dwindles" and was on the front cover of the June 11th issue of USA Today. The gist of the article was that minorities are now making up almost half of the births in the US.
