Diversity
Diversity relates to differences. It may refer to values, attitudes, culture, philosophy or religious convictions, knowledge, skills, experience and lifestyle between groups, or individuals within a group. It may also be on the basis of gender, national or ethnic origin, disability or age. In public administration a diverse organisation would be considered to be one which reflects the society and different needs of the customers and stakeholders it serves.
