I think that diversity is a good chance to substitute skills between coworkers. I am a technical writer. Since I am living abroad, I have been working in a diverse team. Someone is from Colombia, another is from Europe, and I am from Uzbekistan. I would say it is really respectful to your nationality, race, and color. The conversation language is preferred speaking in English by everyone, of course. Diversity can be brought a lot of benefits for a company, as I mentioned one is skills exchange, another is profitable for selling out products from the company. There is a wide range of productivity.

My workplace is pretty diverse. I think it is beneficial for team and society.

I think diversity is necessary as Nina said, but some times it doesn't positive because everyone maintains its view

Even though the humanity have envolved, it is still possible to find team works very closed; however diversity represent the best gun for a work team because there are a set of thoughs and experiences that come from people with many nationalities, ages, gender, etc, that could be harnessed, so is easier to innovate and increase the performance.

My group teamwork is very diverse, because has equality of genero and responsabilities for members.
I think is benefit to positive and negative coments respect to one idea specific.

I'm not working for a company with some diversity yet, but possibly I'll have culture exchanges through my college. Its so exciting that there are a lot of people with different backgronds working on the same objects...

How diverse is your workplace? How can diversity benefit your team?

Nowadays, I´m working at house because the pandemic covid,“homeworking” is the name for it, so diversity is an usual in my company.
The employees has to many idea’s and thinking with different ways.
Same needs to working in the place specific and others at home, some like use formal wear and another’s more informal, some need´s silence and others noise. This is the diversity, some people need the different things and stuff for innovate and be more production.
The company’s needs to prepare the charter for the employee. He need to be happy for your job, because him happiness is the value for created more development and money to the company.

I live in a country which is diverse in itself. We have so many languages, cultures and religions. My workplace is full of diversity with people all across the country. Everyone shares a good bond amongst themselves. But there are people who feel isolated and keeps very quiet.

I live in country that diversity is something norm ,without this variation in cultures and backgrounds we wouldn't have such an unique society.

In my workplace diversity is good. The diversity benefited the teams because each individual of the team has different perspectives and ideas that improve the projets with their experiences and expertise.
