Diversity management has evolved over the last twenty years. Foundational diversity management models outline the importance of valuing the differences of a diverse workforce.  The exodus towards globalization requires leaders to be competent in diversity management with intercultural competence.  This is defined as the knowledge, skills, and critical cultural awareness needed to effectively manage a diverse environment and workforce. It’s important to understand that cultural diversity is more than just an observance of anti-discrimination regulations. Valuing diversity is an integral practice in the success or failure of an organization and a matter of aligning job requirements to candidate competencies to ensure employees are skilled for success in the position and positively leveraging those skill sets to benefit the employee and the organization.  Diversity and inclusion are valuable because leaders and managers within an organization can better understand the impact of multiple dimensions of diversity in the workforce on organizational profitability and sustainability.
