Considering diversity at work is important to understand and analyze team dimensions, recognize privileges and prevent stereotyping as well as tackle issues like discrimination or the gender pay gap.

According to Loden and Rosener’s Diversity Wheel, there is an internal dimension that is connected to the personality of a person and that cannot really be influenced, and there is an external dimension that is mainly a consequence of personal decisions. Both are layers of diversity that influence collaboration and decision-making. The internal dimension concerns age, gender, sexual orientation, mental and physical capability, nationality and ethnicity, and social class background while the external dimension is connected to personal and recreational habits, the geographic location of a person, the religion or worldview, appearance, marital status, the educational background, income, and work experience.

To provide equal opportunities for everyone, it is important to also be aware of intersectionality - a tool that helps to understand “the ways that multiple forms of inequality or disadvantage sometimes compound themselves” (Kimberlé Crenshaw, American Civil Rights Advocate Professor). It offers a perspective to provide more equity (meaning: to give everyone what they need to be successful) and can help shift the focus on competencies and the potential of people.
