Why Diverse Teams Create Better Work

+1 for inclusiveness, equity and diversity:

A diverse workplace might ultimately create better results, a new study suggests.

The study, detailed by NPR, looks at the work of scientific researchers and finds that papers written by multicultural teams were cited in other research more often than those written by homogenous groups. In the world of research, citations are seen as a metric of quality.

Ethnic diversity wasn’t the only harbinger of success. The same study also found that groups with members from geographic areas–perhaps three cities in the same country–also created better papers than those with members from the same place.
