What is the value of diversity?

UCT's Employment Equity Policy states: ‘It is recognised that employment equity is essential to the University’s mission. Diversity in the University’s staff complement adds immense value to the educational experience of both a diverse student population and to the institution as a whole’ (2006, Clause 1). Do we have a culture of valuing diversity as a resource and strength to draw upon or does our culture press for homogeneity? What does valuing diversity look like and how can it be promoted? What is the relationship between having an institutional identity and the value of diversity?
