- After reviewing the Week 7 Lecture, in your own words (don't copy from any source),what is cultural diversity?

While this ethical code has been phrased in many ways (Links to an external site.) throughout history, our lecture suggests ignoring the Golden Rule when it comes to modern business. Some now assert the Platinum Rule (Links to an external site.) is better in a culturally diverse workplace; "Do unto others as they would have you do unto them." Which 'rule' do you feel would be most ethical in a multicultural workplace and why?
