competence is critical for meeting the demands of today’s
world. Organizations of all sizes can ill afford to ignore
the opportunities (and also the liabilities) brought about
by diversity and globalism. Consider the impact of the
internet in bringing people together who would not otherwise
have an opportunity to communicate with one another.
While we have developed the technical capabilities to

learning is a must in modern worklife. Learning how to
manage diversity among those you work with requires
learning to deal with the complexities fo diversity that
few have mastered. Where do people learn cultural
competence? Most of us learn some of it early in our
lives from parents, friends, teachers, and our clergy,
but few of these important people adequately model effective
cross-cultural skills. Higher education institutions
rarely prepare people for a diverse workplace. At the
same time, working in a modern organization requires
you to learn what you need as quickly as possible and
use it as readily as necessary--including managing diversity.
organizations offer new and existing employees a diversity
course to make up for the lack of pre-recruitment preparation.
However, these programs rarely equip employees adequately
to deal with the increasing cultural complexities that
they encounter from within and outside of the organization.
Studies show that even the best diversity practice organizations
are not fully protected from verbal racial slights and
other insensitive communications that lower productivity.
The required depth of expertise simply exceeds the internal
capabilities of even these bet practice companies. Diversity
managers require even greater competence to serve
as a leader.
