"The real challenges facing us all is to make sure that we address
these demographic challenges systemically. Our ability to do so will determine
America's ability to compete globally. Whereas the strength of many of the
nation's competitors is their homogeneity, it is America's diversity that
presents both its biggest crisis and its greatest opportunity. The question
is: Can we adapt our old ways of being, the ways we have traditionally valued
people as is now reflected in our organizational culture, management practices,
and employee and customer relations? The real challenge is to grasp the opportunity
diversity presents, the heart of which lies in the 'unpredictable uniqueness'
that is the product of interaction across differences."
From the book: Valuing Diversity: New Tools For A New Reality
- Griggs and Louw ©1995 McGraw-Hill, Inc.
Diversity programs demand real-life experience, falling down and pulling yourself
up along the way, learning to become self-aware, acquiring new skills and to
apply them in the workplace. By the year 2000 more than eight out of ten
workers will be members of minority groups, women or immigrants. If your
organization isn't tapping the talents of a diverse workforce you'll pay the
price in terms of productivity, profits and professional satisfaction.
Valuing Diversity® New Tools for a New Reality offers fresh
perspectives from experienced consultants and clients grappling with diversity
issues. Together they provide a road map of the journey....from initial awareness...to
essential personal, interpersonal and organizational skills...to lasting systemic
changes that better prepare us for the challenges of the global economy.
