Hello fahri,

In this sentence, the word 'this' refers to the whole clause before: the fact that we have a really diverse team here...

When you say 'you don't make the most of something' it means that you don't fully take advantage of it or exploit its possibilities as much as you might.

The diversity in all place should´t be a discussion topic, but simply of the inclusion, there shouldn't be any kind of discrimination, all we are equality.

Diversity in my country, especially ethnic and religious diversity is one of the biggest problem in different levels: political, social and geographically. Here is a lot of conflict on diversity. It is a very long time that international society is trying to solve the problem, but they haven't appreciable success. I learned a lot from this lesson and I will participate in this course very actively, in case of access to internet of course. Thank you

The diverse in our workplace is less than what excepted, we're of the same religion, nationality, doctrine and language, but the only different is ages that made some problems between old and young workers.

And the benefit is agreeable.

I am working in a bank, it has jobs diversity and domain diversity, it has a special venue for conferences. the job diversity causes staff always be happy and satisfied. They can promote each 2 year. there is sexual equality in there.

My work place is diverse, I have colleagues with different ages, nationalities, sexual orientation, religion. But this situation is good to me, every day in my work place is very interesting and funny. We discuss different types of topics, points of view and we enrich each other. Our company is very tolerant to all kinds of diversities. Diversity is absolutely needed and helpful for every company with big goals.

Unhappily with this world pandemy i'm unemployed, but in Brazil usually the workplaces aren't thinked to provide a good feeling during the work, some higher companies have a good place to work, but it's not a rule.

In my experience, I stay with open mind people that doesn´t care about the cultural, racial or etnical differences.. I have never seen in the school where I go an exclusion case or something similar. It would be a great propose to make a campaign of the liberties of people . (there is where could be included equality, diversity and inclusion).

My workplace is diverse. We have two different nationalities from two continents Africa and Europe. It is useful because we have sometimes different approaches in order to solve a problem or to innovate. The aspect of the language is also a big benefit for our team.

The diversity in my workplace is present, there are people with different religions, universities, and lifestyle, this situation makes a great impact on the team because the generate competence and with this the quality of the service that the consulting firm offer to their clients increase, but is important to mention that the opportunities inside the team are not the same for all team members, while there is diversity there is not equality and that's one of the most important thing we need to change, but the leaders don't do anything to improve and make a better place to work for all team.
