Equity and DiversityThe First Debate

Plato vs. Aristotle

Saxonhouse, A., Fear of Diversity: The Birth of Political Science in Ancient Greek

Thought, Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1992

Agr 101

Diversity Debate

  • Plato…Unity and harmony would be achieved by shared characteristics of a homogenous citizenry.

  • Aristotle…Unity and harmony is achieved through difference. Democracy based on variety is more likely to thrive.

Agr 101

Diversity is a kaleidoscope

of people who bring a variety of backgrounds,

life experiences, styles, perspectives, personalities, values, and beliefs

as assets to the groups and organizations with which

they interact.

Agr 101

Are we a

diverse group?

Dealing with diversity

Dealing with Diversity

  • What are the strengths/benefits that diversity gives us?

    • Do most people find it difficult dealing with differences in people?

    • Why is it difficult to deal with differences?

    • How have we, as a nation, dealt with diverse issues of racial/ethnic/other cultural groups?

Agr 101

Why is having an


of our

differences so


Agr 101



Overcoming barriers caused by differences

Using differences to create synergy

Agr 101

  • Cultural Awareness

  • limited knowledge and awareness of cultural differences

  • limited understanding of the influence of culture on attitudes and behaviors.

Agr 101

  • Stereotypes

  • function like filters between individuals

  • interfering with our ability to hear or see others clearly

  • hindering our efforts to understand those who are different.

Agr 101

  • Exclusion

  • we sow the seeds of our own destruction

  • we render ourselves less powerful, more hopeless, with less to gain and lose

  • we pay a steep price for excluding people, and for tolerating systems that are demoralizing and inequitable

Agr 101

“We must not only learn to tolerate our differences. We must welcome them as the richness and diversity which can lead to true intelligence.”

-Albert Einstein

Agr 101

By the year 2050, 47% of the total U.S. population will be Asian, Hispanic or Black.

Agr 101

14% of U.S. population speaks a language other than English at home.

Of the 14%, 54% speak Spanish.

Agr 101

In the next decade, women, people of color and immigrants will constitute 80% of the labor market.

--U.S. Department of Labor

Agr 101

Multicultural Issues in the Workplace

• Language problems leading to miscommunication and misinterpretation

• Incorrect assumptions about diverse cultures

•Expectations that others will conform

• Biases against the unfamiliar

• Traditional American values in conflict with values of other cultures

Agr 101

“The problem for us is not to learn…but to unlearn.”

--Gloria Steinem

Agr 101

  • Concluding Remarks

  • Quote:

  • “Is it not true,” he asked, “that every landscape I behold, every friend I meet, every act I perform, every pain I suffer, leaves me a different being than that they found me?

  • Ralph Waldo Emerson -- Education, in The Portable Emerson (1946)
