Baldrige Education Glossary: Diversity

Diversity

The term diversity refers to valuing and benefiting from personal differences. These differences address many variables, including race, religion, color, gender, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, age, education, geographic origin, and skill characteristics, as well as differences in ideas, thinking, academic disciplines, and perspectives.

The Baldrige Criteria refer to the diversity of your workforce hiring and student and other customer communities. Capitalizing on both provides enhanced opportunities for high performance; student and other customer, workforce, and community satisfaction; and student, customer, and workforce loyalty.

Note: Blue words above are hyperlinks to other Glossary terms.
