Diversity in the workforce drives economic growth and contributes to the success of individual organizations as well as the national economy. It is a core strength of the United States, and it will grow in importance as the country becomes increasingly diverse. Workplace diversity promises great benefits, but it also presents great challenges.

Diversity management is a process that leads to a positive work environment where the similarities and differences among employees and all persons are valued. Research confirms a positive correlation between successful diversity management and organizational performance.
