The benefits of diversity
Diversity plays a very important role in our society as of today. Diversity has a number of benefits, such as improvement in problem- solving, better use of talent, and problem solving abilities. Margaret A Neale states that, “ You wouldn't necessarily think that the conflict caused
by diversity could lead to better performance, or that a team that feels more comfortable with itself in fact underperforms, but that’s what studies shows”. Sometimes race diversity can causes problems within the group, but also can create amazing opportunities to succeed.
Diversity is also important for being able to work with others even though it may not be comfortable, evidence shows “ What feels good may not always reflect the performance of the team.” One of the most interesting recent findings in the area of work-team performance is that no matter what you do, you have to work together because you can’t achieve greatness without each other. Also group conflict can occur, but that is what makes a team strong, “ Of course, we’re talking about intellectual conflict, debate, and controversy, not personality conflict,” is how Neale views group conflict. Overall there are many things that we couldn’t accomplish without the help of a group.
