In my last work, there were some co-workers from different provinces of Peru, the Manager was a peruvian person of arab parents whom have lived in the country for many years. But they've still preserved their own culture.
The diversity can benefit to team to come up with diverse opinions to daily troubles. As more points of view are found, a wide variety of possible solutions will be available to choose. In addition, being a diverse team-working can help to know a little more about the different cultures of its members.

Little bit confused

my team is the same ages ,sex , country. we are studying a class in a university and work together .Our benefit is everyone is respects and values each other.when someone give an idea , everyone listen to it and give comment .im so happy when i work with them .

I like this subject because the majority of people live in forgein country are exposed to diversty such as in my workplace, there are many diversty like religion , culturel , language .....
But this diversty can help to improve many things like respect each other and get different ideas with different opinions . Also, it's contribute to learn much more about many other country for instance culturel , traditionel , Days of celebrations ....

Done for me.

" I have completed the following lessons of A team meeting about diversity . The level that I chose was Intermediate B1 Listening.

I live in a country which has a lot of diversity. for example we have different regions, weather, dialect, food, cultures and customs from our country and others from inmigrants. But even when there are some charter that said that it is requiered to respect others' customs and cultures. I think there is needed to socialized and create workplaces to motive people to joing and share their own culture.

I still on high school, where are many people,we have different phisical features, but diversity Is not related at all with that, the people just for being humans, have different ideas, ideology, a differen way to see the world, we are differents even the way that we talk, and I think diversity is so cool, because as I have hear from the television and people older than me...the world would be boring without that diversity, and I'm totally agree with that.

This listening help me, i can answer the questions

i recently finished a book named "a fraction of whole" by steve toltz , i read something there that made me think,it says that people usually read books that adopts their their thinking and beliefs,it means that we mostly just read things that empowers what we think and not to challenge them, i think that s true and since then i try to put myself in positions and do things to challenge my basic and new beliefs,so this is where diversity can really help , the best way to break your imagine of everything , of every law ,to regenerate them and achieve something closer to truth is facing different people with different cultures and behaviors. nothing beside this can improve our thoughts , because we as humans are highly social creatures and we just do things in interaction with other people by engaging our feelings and emotions .
