Lots of times when we hear the word culture, we think of diversity. Fair enough. Diversity is a specialized way of thinking about and addressing culture. This note is not about diversity.  It is about assumptions and how assumptions shape  our organizational culture.
I might work in a highly diverse work force, one that is not diverse at all or like many of us, the work force where I work is moderately diverse. In very broad terms, this diversity is represented by employees from various races, genders, ages, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds.
