The ethical reasons for active pursuit of diversity is that from the deontological ethical stand point it is the duty of the organization to provide help to that section of the society that has been discriminated against for several centuries.

From the perspective of consequential ethics the consequences of pursuing diversity will be to increase problem solving skills, the ability to deal with tricky problems and have different perspective on issues facing the organization.

From the deontological ethical perspective it is the duty of an organization to ensure integration. If there is diversity, there are integration problems. Similarly, it is the moral responsibility of an organization to promote communication within the organization. Diversity places barriers to communication and this reduces productivity. Prejudices within an organization can lead to meaningless conflicts and attrition. This may even lead to higher employee turnover. From the virtue ethics stand point it is not an act of good character to deliberately introduce an element that can lead to disputes. It is an act of low moral worth that leads to meaningless strain, tension, and even fistfights on the shop floor. It is morally reprehensible to go in for diversity if it leads to disagreements and slowdown in work and low productivity.
