1. Corporate governance.
In the corporate governance context, diversity refers to the range of people employed by an organisation, especially in the most senior positions, including the board of directors.
Diversity normally includes gender, race, sexual orientation, religion, nationality, disability, age and educational background, but it may include other additional factors such as diversity of thought.
Lack of diversity may be result of unconscious biases, including affinity bias.
In the investment context, diversity is the beneficial result of the appropriate diversification of investments.
