Google’s Executive Chairman, Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenberg, former SVP Products, wrote in their book, “How Google Works”, that a multiplicity of viewpoints, aka diversity is your best defense against myopia. People from different backgrounds see the world differently. These differences of perspective generate insights that cannot be taught. When you bring these together in a work environment, they integrate to create a broader perspective that is priceless.
