      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    False. Our motivations and expectations play a significant role in how we manage diversity within an organization. Our motivations determine our willingness to embrace diversity and create an inclusive environment. If our motivations are driven by a genuine desire for diversity and inclusion, we are more likely to actively promote and support diversity initiatives. Similarly, our expectations shape our actions and behaviors towards diverse individuals. If we have low expectations or biased beliefs, it can hinder our ability to effectively manage diversity and create a fair and inclusive workplace.
