“Challenge of diversity is one of the most prevailing challenges of our time and it is a challenge that we must embrace. Otherwise we will stay behind our times and the pace of the globe. Organizations are one of the arenas in which diversity issues are becoming increasingly visible. As reactive attitude means direction towards the past, organizations of the future need to embrace diversity with creativity and openness. This means to see diversity not as a short-term, isolated manner but as a source of constant reflexivity needed to deal with the complex issues of our time.” Halleh Ghorashi
