Why is Diversity Important in the Workplace?

Diversity in the workplace allows individuals from different backgrounds and with different perspectives to learn from each other. This diversity can assist in the development of new and innovative ideas and can allow an organization to have better relationships with the existing community.

AACPS is committed to fostering a learning environment where diversity is encouraged,  to recruiting and retaining a workforce that reflects the diversity of our students and surrounding population and to hiring the best employees of all backgrounds who will bring their unique talents and skills into our school system
