Diversity may be defined in a variety of ways. Culture is one of the factors that can define diversity in an organization. There are opportunities and challenges related to leading a culturally diverse organization. It is important to approach issues of diversity with an open mind since it is likely to have an impact on organizational change. Thus, leaders should know how to utilize positive aspects of diversity to forward organizational change and—at the same time—minimize and address challenges related to diversity that might detract from organizational change. This knowledge provides leaders with the tools needed to lead a diverse group through organizational change.
