What is cultural diversity?

Cultural diversity remains one of the key concepts any South African focuses on… and for good reason. Cultural diversity is one of the concepts that South African business has had to adopt due to our rich heritage and also our flaw-ridden history. Up until fairly recently South Africa was a country controlled by one party, the NP, and the majority of our country has been excluded from the general life of the other minority who benefited from their exploitation. Due to this segregation between the two there is a very large gap between the lifestyles as well as a lack of knowledge and awareness between the groups. Due to this our daily business life can have many complications arise if people are not more in-tune with the different cultures of our country. Our country has 11 official languages which means that there are essentially 11 different cultures that need to be understood and looked after for there to be cultural diversity in the workplace. This demands a large effort and makes managing diversity quite a large part running a South African business and consequently calls for there to be diversity training in South Africa.

The second large point is that within the workplace cultural diversity should be encouraged. This something that needs to be explained to anyone that asks “What is cultural diversity?”. Within the company that already has many people of different cultures working for it oppression can and usually will still exist. The only way to counteract this oppression of culture and potential example of systematic racism is by letting people of ‘black cultures’ enjoy the freedom their culture offers and allow them to practice what they culturally practice without being ashamed as it doesn’t coincide with the western culture that dominates white South Africans.

Cultural diversity management is a very tricky subject that takes an extensive knowledge of history and of techniques of reparative justice to overcome and understand, therefore I urge you to take a cultural diversity management course available on this site.
