Diversity includes the differences among various personal and social identities that individuals carry into their professional lives and is an important element of organizational work (Allen, 1994, 2011). As students are expected to be competent communicators in diverse workplaces, this activity provides students with the opportunity to design and appraise diversity statements in an organizational setting. Specially, students share their personal experiences of diversity in college settings and craft a statement to capture diversity, equity, and inclusion. Instructors interested in this 45-minute activity will be provided with instructions on guiding a lecture, small group writing assignment, and class discussion related to diversity in college and organizational life.
