Psychology of Diversity

ANSWER


The term diversity is one of the few terms in contemporary American culture that has been bandied (casually tossed back and forth without caring what effect it may have) over a long time (Feldman, 2005). Many organizations have praised with great enthusiasm and admiration the terms racial, ethnic and cultural diversity as being some of their key sources of organizational strength.  Learning institutions such as universities and colleges, and business organizations which support multiculturalism have been seen to get out of their ways to publicize the significance they place on developing and maintaining diversity within their institutions and organizations (Cultural Diversity and Ethnic Minority Psychology, 2010). However, in spite of this superfluity attention that diversity has been receiving, latest studies suggest that the concept of diversity is not clearly and well understood by the common public (Feldman, 2004).
