Ralph de la Vega, President AT&T MobileAn op-ed in the Seattle Times lays out the argument for diversity. Edward Iwata, an author and journalist based in the SanFrancisco Bay Area argues diversity isn’t about political correctness, it’s about the bottom line.

Iwata says other companies that have utilized diversity to broaden their business include American Express, IBM, Intel, Cisco Systems, Procter & Gamble — plus Washington-based Microsoft, Starbucks, Weyerhaeuser, and Amazon.com.
