Is Diversity In The Eye of the Beholder?

Historically, diversity in organizations has meant the hiring and retention of people from historically underrepresented ethnic, gender and racial backgrounds as a means of remedying past inequalities and benefitting the organization's bottom line at the same time. Many of these programs focus almost exclusively on increasing racial diversity. Despite the noble goals of racial diversity iniatives, recent research suggests that an organization's failure to clearly define what type of diversity is sought can actually result in a diversity program that hurts racial minority groups.
