  Introduction Our team would like to study about the “ Diversity workforce in an organization” We have discussed and finally decided to choose “ Apple Inc” for our group project, because Apple well managed the diverse workforce. The world’s increasing globalization requires more interaction among people from diverse cultures, beliefs, and backgrounds than ever before. People no longer live and work in an insular marketplace; they are now part of a worldwide economy with competition coming from nearly every continent. For this reason, profit and non-profit organizations need diversity to become more creative and open to change. Maximizing and capitalizing on workplace diversity has become an important issue for management today. Supervisors and managers are the targeted audience because they need to recognize the ways in which the workplace is changing, evolving, and diversifying. Since managing diversity remains a significant organizational challenge, managers must learn the managerial skills needed in a multicultural work environment. Supervisors and managers must be prepared to teach themselves and others within their organizations to value multicultural differences in both associates and customers so that everyone is treated with dignity. This paper is designed for managers to effectively manage diverse workforce populations. It provides a general definition for “diversity”, discusses the benefits of diversity in the workplace, the challenges of managing a diverse workplace, and presents effective strategies for managing diverse workforces.   Objectives To study and understand “   Apple Founder and CEO Steve Jobs ” vision and management style of diverse workforce in his organisation and creating the Apple brand successful world wide. To analyze his strategy, how he structure the diverse work force positively and making them as a dynamic, innovative workforce. Diversity Diversity is generally defined as acknowledging, understanding, accepting, valuing, and celebrating differences among people with respect to age, class,  ethnicity, gender, physical and mental ability, race, sexual orientation, spiritual practice, and public assistance status Diversity issues are now considered important and are projected to become even more important in the future due to increasing differences in the U.S. population. Companies need to focus on diversity and look for ways to become totally inclusive organizations because diversity has the potential of yielding greater productivity and competitive advantages The many separate societies that emerged around the globe differed markedly from each other, and many of these differences persist to this day. As well as the more obvious cultural differences that exist between people, such as language, dress and traditions, there are also significant variations in the way societies organize themselves, in their shared conception of  morality, and in the ways they interact with their environment. There different types of diversity, few of them are, Diversity (Political) describes differences in racial or ethinic classifications, gender, age, religion, philosophy, socioeconomic background physical health, physical abilities, mental health, sexual orientation, genetic attributes, behavior attractiveness or other identifying features. In measuring human diversity, a diversity index measures the probability that any two residents, chosen at random, would be of different ethinicities, If all residents are of the same ethnic group diversity index is zero. The diversity index does not taken in to account the willingness of individuals to cooperate with those of other ethnicities. If half are from one group and half from another group then the diversity index is 50. Cultural Diversity is the quality of diverse or different cultures, as opposed to monoculture, as in the global monoculture, or a homogenization of cultures, akin to cultural decay. The cultural diversity can also refer to having different cultures respect each other’s differences. The cultural diversity als o sometimes used to mean the variety of human societies or cultures in a specific region, or in the world as a whole. The culturally destructive action of globalization is often said to have negative effect on the world’s cultural diversity.   Functional diversity is a politically and socially correct term for special needs, disability, impairment and handicap.  Conclusion  A diverse workforce is a reflection of a changing world and marketplace. Because of the globalization diverse workforce is very important to the organization. Like Apple Inc had head quarters in US, But they sell their product in many countries, So they need diverse people to promote their products in local languages, and marketing in different locations, and need to do production in different countries to save the production cost. So it is very important to manage diverse work force. Diverse work teams can bring high value to the organizations. Respecting individual differences will benefit the workplace by creating a competitive edge and increasing work productivity. So that the Diversity management is very important for the organization growth. It benefits associates by creating a fair and safe environment where everyone has access to opportunities and challenges. Management tools in a diverse workforce should be used to educate everyone about diversity and its issues, including laws and regulations. Most workplaces are made up of diverse cultures, so organizations need to learn how to adapt to be successful.
