Diversity is the process of creating a workforce or team that encompasses as many types of gender, skin tone, race, religion, creed, sexual orientation. Basically different types of human beings. Other than being law (yes. we have to have a law against being non-diverse welcome to the 18th century) diversity helps create a workforce with different opinions, points of view and mindsets, meaning your team will represent a broader spectrum of people. Not just middle-class white girls called Harriet.
