Contemporary organizations pursue diversity for many reasons – e.g., economic, ethical, regulatory, legal, and social. Ideally an organization’s human diversity matches its strategic goals. Little attention has been given, however, to a theoretical basis for diversity as an organizational goal. This paper argues that Modigliani’s theory of diversity in investments might provide a model for managing an organization’s human diversity and reducing its business risks.
