What are the benefits of such a diverse societyWeegy:
I think disasters such as 9/11 happen because different cultures don?t understand other cultures, so they are afraid of them. But what if we all did?
That is one of the benefits of living in a diverse society; learning about other cultures. [ In order to live as a community, we all have to understand each other. How can we understand a culture? First of all, what is culture? ?the set of shared attitudes, values, goals, and practices that characterizes an institution or organization?- Merriam-Webster Dictionary
How can we learn about different cultures?
You can start by sharing and teaching your friends or classmates about your culture.
Bring food from your culture.
Tell them about the special holidays and events.
Then let them teach you about theirs.
Join clubs like Diversity Club.
Benefit from living in a diverse society by being multi-cultural and open to other beliefs and cultures. If you are, you will understand why a certain culture does something. Then, you won?t be afraid or alienate them.

How can we foster a climate of acceptance and cultural pluralism in the United StatesWeegy:
3 Ways to Communicate Diversity
1. Hold Workshops for Faculty and Staff
Bring in a skilled professional to run workshops for your faculty and staff. The experienced clinician will open up sensitive issues for discussion. [ She will be a confidential resource which your community will feel comfortable turning to for advice and help. Make attendance mandatory.
2. Teach Diversity
Embracing the principles of diversity taught in a workshop requires everybody to put diversity into practice. That means reworking lesson plans, encouraging new, more diverse student activities, hiring 'different' teachers and much more.
Communication imparts knowledge which can breed understanding. As administrators and faculty, we send dozens of subtle messages to students not only by what we discuss and teach, but, more importantly, by what we do NOT discuss or teach. We cannot embrace diversity by remaining set in our ways, beliefs and thoughts. Teaching tolerance is something all of us have to do. In many cases it means shedding old practices and altering traditions and modifying points of view. Simply increasing a school's intake of non-Caucasian students will not make a school diverse. Statistically it will. Spiritually it will not. Creating a climate of diversity means radically altering the way your school does things. 3. Encourage diversity
One of the ways you as an administrator can encourage diversity is to require compliance with school policies and procedures. The same kind of strict adherence to policy and procedure which makes cheating, hazing and sexual misconduct taboo should apply to diversity. Your staff must become proactive when it comes to encouraging diversity. Your staff must know that you will hold them just as accountable for your diversity goals as you will for teaching outcomes. ] Auto answered|Score 1|rachell028|Points 610|
