“I think the great value of diversityDNA™ is in providing new information, new perspectives, new insights to people and institutions. When we understand the assumptions and rules by which others operate we can better discover our agreements and resolve our conflicts.

This is not a panacea, of course. There are disagreements and conflicts that are not easily resolvable, and some that are not resolvable at all—but knowledge allows us to focus on real problems, and not on perceived problems caused by misunderstanding and miscommunication.”
