Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Diversity"

The meaning of "Diversity" in various phrases and sentences

Q: O que significa The diversity research literature is becoming increasingly siloed.

What is 'siloed' here??
A: Dear Gadgeteer,

I see why you ask this question. I am a licensed reading teacher, this includes a master's degree as a reading teacher, and the meaning is unclear to me. I have an idea, and let's see if you get other answers.

I think this is figurative English, and not strict technical English. A silo is a building store grain. To my knowledge - not really my area - the farmers do not mix grains; each silo holds only one type of grain.

I think what the writer is saying diversity research is becoming more and more compartmentalized (separate and alone), more restricted. For example, research about gender (men and women) is *separate and alone. Research about gay people is separate and alone. Research about people of color is separate and alone. So, if you want to do research on a gay man or woman of color, you have a problem.

The other possible meaning is that opinions or philosophies about diversity are not being shared or discussed. Like our politics, different sides are arguing like our political leaders, not really cooperating.

I am not totally sure about either of my answers. I am having the same problem with silo that you are. This is a picture of a farmhouse with grain silos in Minnesota in the midwest of the United States.

Q: Diversity Is Simply Good For Business

I was born in japan, rise up in japan. I work for a Japanese traditional company now. I worked among the a lot of people from same country. I thought that it's normal.

It was very easy that working with people having similar values and speaking same language. I was able to communicate with them without talking a lot.

However, a lot of companies in Japan went bankrupt and economic slowdown have continued for twenty years, Japan Society have changed little by little. Foreign workers in our office has slightly increased. I work with people from China, South-Korea, U.S.A, UK. They have diverse backgrounds.

I feel that we, Japanese do not have much to argue with other people at a conference where foreigners attend. The reason why is that we don’t know the feeling of the foreigners, so we may notice the importance of empathizing with others.

The diversity of culture and age is bringing good effects to my office. soa natural?
A: I think this is a nice way to put it! :) Good job, though ^^
