The ethnocentric perspective, on a certain level, can lead to a positive group identity, which in turn enhances one?s affiliation with others within the same group, personal identity, confidence, self-esteem, understanding of self, [ and a psychological sense of well-being.

User: 1. What is diversity? Why is diversity valued?

Weegy: These are the some of the Diversity Quotes in classroom: My school is holding a diversity parade at the end of the month, and all the classrooms are decorating their doors for the event. [ I spent a couple hours today compiling a list of quotes on the subject. I could only fit 4 quotes on the poster, but found many more. I thought I'd share them in case anyone else is doing something similar... We may have different religions, different languages, different colored skin, but we all belong to one human race - Kofi Annan If you judge people, you have no time to love them - Mother Teresa Love is the only force capable of turning an enemy into a friend - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Peace can not be kept by force, it can only be achieved by understanding - Albert Einstein The highest result of education is tolerance - Helen Keller Although we are in different boats, you in your boat and we in our canoe, we share the same river of life - Oren Lyons, Onandaga Nation Chief We all live with the objective of being happy; our lives are all different and yet the same - Anne Frank We have become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic. Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes, different dreams - Jimmy Carter If we can not end now our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity - John F. Kennedy Prejudice is a burden that confuses the past, threatens the future and renders the present inaccessible - Maya Angelou ]
