      Stephanie's Answer

      Your views on diversity are very positive and strengths-focused; however, I suggest that you are a bit more specific about what diversity entails. I have provided an example in the "Revised Answer" section.

      "I am fortunate to have worked among many diverse groups of people, in terms of age, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and other distinguishing characteristics. Every organization I have worked for has valued diversity, which aligns well with my own core values. I view diversity as a valuable strategic advantage in today's global economy."

      "I have spent my entire career working with diverse groups of people and students. I believe working with diverse people has made me a better person because I value, respect, and appreciate the cultural differences each of us have brought to the table. I would not have wanted it to be any different."
