Value of Diversity

A diversity of ideas added to any level of government can lead to..

Exchanges of creative ideas: Creativity and innovation are more likely to blossom from diversity because it challenges our normal thought pattern and forces us to think more creatively. 

Helps us respect different cultures and points of view: If we do not put the effort into learning the effect of diversity on our community we are missing an accurate view of society.

Diversity gives room for positive and vigorous debate: If the only viewpoints we hear come from people who think in a similar way, it does not leave room to challenge our way of thinking.

It were not best that we should all think alike; it is difference of opinion that makes horse races.
— Mark Twain
