1.)The definition of diversity in and of itself means different, therefore it stands to reason the definition of a diverse work force would mean to have different people of various backgrounds, beliefs, and lives that are ever changing all coming together (like a melting pot) to form a workforce needed for a business. A great example of a diverse workforce would be the United States Military, I am currently serving in the military as a welder. I can tell you for a fact that no one in the military is the same. We all come from different backgrounds and ways of life, a fine example of a knit workforce that functions in tune with one another regardless of where they come from.
I am not entirely sure why (on the civilian side of employment) employers would higher diverse groups, but if I had to take an educated guess it would be to encourage those like the individuals they hired to want to also apply to work for them knowing that they will be able to be them selves and not be judged while working in a stable, secured, and professional work environment. I believe that the benefits would be to have a pool of diverse potential employees to have if an employer ever needed to hire more employees if the need to had ever raised. The benefits I personally would see would lots of individuals who could put aside their differences to do a job both proficiently and professionally as they could regardless of their history, backgrounds ( to a certain extent), or beliefs.
One strategy an employer could use would be to advertise to all groups and hire those who are both qualified and diverse for the job position. In my personal experience as a minority (out side of the military), it is important to me that a company advertise openly that they are accepting of all diversities before or during an applicant process. That way it is understood before and after taking a job that the working environment is a safe place regardless of how you identify.
One potential problem an employer might experience during a hiring process, is speculation from a applicant that they were not offered position based on their minority. A way of gently handling this situation would be to explain your reasoning with work ethic examples as to why they weren’t offered the job. Let them know about the employment policy regarding the protection of diversity. Encourage them to apply at a later date if another position becomes available. It’s important that they are shown value as a person, regardless of how they identify.

2.)Diversity in the workplace means that different types of people work at the organization. Diverse workplaces have employees of varying ages, gender, race, education, marital status, etc. Organizations want to attract diversity for different reasons, such as innovation, localization, and adaptability. Diversity brings innovation because employees with different perspectives and ideas collaborate. Diversity brings localization because the employees can relate to broader demographics. Diversity brings adaptability because new ways of thinking and decision making allow the organization to keep up with consumers.
To attract a diverse workforce, organizations must use internal and external tactics to recruit applicants. An example of internal recruitment is hiring from within. An example of external recruitment is an organization attending job fairs at different colleges or universities to attract younger candidates. It is important for organizations to appeal to everyone, so they should emphasize diversity during recruitment. To retain a diverse workforce, organization should implement and require diversity trainings. Some people have never been in a diverse atmosphere, so trainings can ensure that all employees are taught how to work with others.
Issues that can arise from focusing on diversity are cliques, communication barriers, and and resistance to change (Vaux, 2016). Cliques can form when a place is very diverse because people are more comfortable being around others who are similar to them. Conflicts can stem from communication barriers. People may speak different languages or perceive conversations differently than others. Resistance to change can be an issue because some people are stubborn.

3.)Diversity in the context of a work environment would mean having people with different backgrounds, experiences, and life experience. This can come from different religious backgrounds, work experience, race, gender, age, educational background, sexual orientation, and even geographic location (Williams, L. (2022)). A diverse workforce could look like people from all walks and areas of life working together as a unit to accomplish a goal for the company they work for.
Diversity has been a large topic at my current employer, with greater focus on Employee Resource Groups and getting current employees to become more involved with D
