5 4 4 Why Diversity? The Law of Requisite Variety: Any system will die if the variety of the system is not at least as big as the variety of its environment. -W. Ross Ashby (Pioneer in Cybernetics)

6 5 5 Defining Diversity There are varying definitions and interpretations of diversity in the workforce environment. Some common thoughts are: Diversity is recognizing, appreciating, respecting, and utilizing a variety of attributes, not just race and ethnicity. Diversity creates performance advantages through the synergy of diverse ideas and people. A diverse workforce should appropriately reflect national demographics.

7 6 Labor Force Demographics

8 7 7 Diversity and Workforce Mix A viable acquisition workforce is dependent upon its ability to establish an organization with an appropriate mix of talents and skills. Mix should include: –Race –Ethnicity –Gender –Age –Experience –Veterans and Disabled

9 8 8 Diversity vs EEO… What’s the difference? Many organizations strive to draw a clear distinction between diversity management and leadership from EEO compliance. In the traditional sense… –Equal opportunity is a legal concept in place to mitigate discrimination practices and experiences due to gender, religion or race/ethnicity or membership of any other legally protected group. In contrast –Diversity is more about the spirit or intent of equity and inclusion.

10 9 9 Organizational Perspectives on Diversity Organizations seeking to define diversity, whether military or civilian may consider the following questions: Is “diversity” more than simple population representation? Why is “diversity” valuable to your organization? How is “diversity” valuable to your organization?
