What is diversity?

Our unique approach to diversity - where differences are defined as knowledge domains

"At INNOVERSITY COPENHAGEN we insist on working with a knowledge-based approach to diversity, where each difference is defined as a knowledge domain that can be leveraged and used for innovation. See also The Innoversity Model for a more indepth discussion.

Often when we talk about diversity, we tend to think about cultural or demographic differences -  and we certainly agree that these differences are important. But in The Innoversity Model, our focus is primarily on the differences that - when leveraged and used - will have a direct impact on group performance, with a particular focus on innovation performance.


This particular approach to working with diversity was developed by Susanne Justesen in her research project with Copenhagen Business School 2004-2007 (Ph.D studies). In her research, Justesen defined diversity as "The availability AND use of a multitude of knowledge domains". In this approach, it is not enough to merely have a lot of differences (knowledge domains) available in a group, those differences need to be leveraged and used for diversity to exist.
