For my term paper, I would like to discuss the ethics of embracing diversity and the importance of diversity management. Diversity management is the key to development in a competitive market. Corporations cannot hide behind a lack of cultural intelligence. Corporations must embrace diversity if they want to pursue global market relevancy.

Diversity management is a vital ethically based professional leadership skill that all should implement.
