According to research completed by the University of Kansas, it is more likely than not that you work with individuals who have a different cultural make up than you do. There is nothing wrong with that. Where this can become an issue is if one individual projects an ethnocentric viewpoint and refuses to learn from and about others. Multiculturalism is the desired behavior which is the ability to be open, flexible, and supportive of those who are unlike you. This is a key strategy in the workforce today.
