Option #1: Diversity Experience
In a well-written paper, compare and contrast four definitions of diversity. One will be from the U.S.-based Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM); the second will be from an international scholarly or business publication; the third will be from an international non-profit organization; and the fourth will be from a corporation or business located where you live (your city or your country).
Address the following in your paper:
- Describe the sources of the definitions that you are comparing and contrasting, as well as their definitions of diversity.
- Describe SHRM’s and the scholarly publication’s definitions. (Remember to name and describe the international scholarly or business publication you are using as a resource. What is the composition of its key audience?)
- Compare and contrast your definition of diversity with the definitions from your chosen publication and SHRM. Be specific and evaluate each definition on its global inclusivity.
- How do these definitions line up with your own diversity awareness or definition? Describe how your life experiences—including your country of origin, culture, gender, race, and other factors—inform your diversity awareness. Provide specific examples of diversity-related situations you have encountered. Evaluate the categories of diversity with which you are most familiar, and those with which you have the least experience.
Your paper should be 4-6 pages in length, not including the required title and references pages, and it must conform to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA (Links to an external site.). Include at least two non-course related references.
