Diversity conflicts usually occur in organizations where communication is inadequate and generally require a third party to facilitate resolution. Developing and preserving healthy workplace relationships must be a top priority for all employees. Using mediation to resolve diversity conflicts in the workplace allow preservation of jobs and full and equal participation and contributions by all employees (including minority employee groups).
