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.

Actually, my workplace is quite diverse, there are people of different social classes, ages even different sexual preferences, and our team is a great team, all tasks are easier and pleasant to do and we can discuss the many topics without no one kind of problems, as well as, we shared our different point of view freely.

My workplace is diverse. I have colleagues from different ages, religions, gender, race and political positions. I think that the diverse create more respect for different opinions and new ideas.

My workplace right now is not diverse at all, because I work alone, but I think that diversity is one of the most important think that can good influence on teamwork on the whole! Diversity of races, ages, etc gives us opportunity to have a lot of new opinions, strateges, mindes based on diversity of background, life experience and etc.!

I'm a student, but If I had one work place, I would like find a work that It's have respect and diversity values.

Fortunately my workplace is quite diverse, that is, we have colleagues from different ages, gender, religions and even political positions. From my point of view, diversity has been very beneficial to team work; this is meanly due to the exchange of ideas and acknowledges that we can do things in different ways.

I don't think diversity is a good thing. It exists, in fact. Identity, to find a common identity, that is our aim. That needs love. Love through offering.
