Course Description This course examines diversity at the societal, organizational, and individual levels.  At the societal level, for example: How to measure the health of an economy? Growth in GDP is the current dominant metric. But organizational diversity might be a better measure if health is understood as the ability to adapt to sudden changes in the environment.  What is the relationship between wealth and diverse principles of worth?  At the organizational level: Under what conditions does racial and gender diversity contribute to higher team performance?  Can a complex organization be managed according to diverse principles of evaluation?  Moving to the individual level, how do we manage the multiple presentations of self in a diverse society?
