Diversity is used to define the difference of people or varieties in any given place or area. I believe it is important to have a diverse group to accomadate and get a variety of inputs and to build upon each other.

In what ways can ethnocentrism be detrimental to a society? This is when we will completely judge a person or society based off of our own beliefs or standards and values. I believe that this is not good because that person or community could be a great help or influence to us and if we shut them out to start with then they may never open their “doors” to us and show us something and possibly great in this life. 3.

What is diversity? Why is diversity valued? Diversity is the condition of having or being composed of differing elements, variety, especially the inclusion of different types of people (as people of different races or cultures) in a group or organization. (http://www.merriam-webster.com ) I think diversity is valued because it gives everyone the opportunity to being themselves and create groups or organizations to be with others who share the same interest. 2. What is ethnocentrism? In what ways can ethnocentrism be detrimental to a society? Ethnocentrism is judging another culture solely by the values and standards of one's own culture. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethnocentrism) I think that ethnocentrism can be detrimental to a society in many ways; first it can make people judge before they actually know what is going on. We can think wrong of certain people and then we decide not to get to know them because we judged before we tried to get to know them. This can harm anyone and make us not like each other and create hate towards each other. 3. Define emigration and immigration. Emigration- leaving a country to settle in another country.

...Diversity Worksheet Nora Shamblin ETH/125 July 16, 2015 Tabitha R. Barrett Diversity Worksheet 1. What is diversity? Why is diversity valued? Diversity is differences. These differences can be age, race, ethnicity, gender, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs, or other ideologies. Diversity is valued because it is through our differences that we are great. I think it is important to explore our differences in a safe, positive, and nurturing environment. I also think diversity should be valued because they enrich a society because they allow people to experience different thinking processes, to see that there is more than one way of approaching issues or living one's life. 2. What is ethnocentrism? In what ways can ethnocentrism be detrimental to a society? Ethnocentrism is the evaluation of other cultures according to preconceptions originating in the standards and customs of one's own culture. An example of this is how we talk about written Hebrew as reading "backward." Why not just say "from right to left". Ethnocentrism is detrimental to a society because it leads us to make premature judgments. It also leads us to make false assumptions about cultural differences. 3. Define emigration and immigration.
