the greatest impact i know is no how the break room smells - has a mix of the following
1. Sambar.
2. steak.
3. Chinese pork dish.
4. Chameli ka tel (South indian with a penchant for the same)
5. stinky pork and beef dishes.

6. punjabi dishes with strong flavor....

Thats the blend in the break-room...... LOL

That is where Diversity Training comes into picture to make employees aware of ethnic-cultural diversity. If you are in a job where dealing with different nationality-ethnic group client base it helps alot to know something about that clients business and their cultural background to be sensitive about it.

Personal experience speaking after working for a bigger corp dealing with ethnically diversed clientele base in So. Cal.

 Seems like corporate world /culture is last in partaking of multiculture when hospitality , tourist, retail industry have been trained(by default and common sense) to do it for ages and have been doing it very succesfully. Corporate world consists mostly of educated people but they need most training for anything and everything.

nahi nahi nahi don't get me started on that... haven't you heard of

1. that consultants get hired not based on skills but by the knowledge of regional language....

2. High level management meetings taking place in regional languages.

3. Americans saying Thank You Saar to Indian and Sank you to a chinese.

4. Americans who want there kids to pursue careers in IT changing thier names to Srini Wang, Suresh Yang LOL 

5. New American culture to come 15 minutesw late in meetings to show importance.

6. Americans beating asians in late coming excuses. Like Dog ran off while i took it for walk this morning .....(desi accent) but Suuurprisingly..he caaame home hutomatically ....isn't that a miracle LOLLOL

7. Wear Indian designer ware and mistaken for Halloween costume. LOL 

8. I told u nah ..cna go on and on...so take a break..not in the stinky break room qwerty talked about omg that jhingas in chinese menu smells awfull.
