Extract

Nigeria, ranking 45th overall [out of 47 countries], places unusually high for the national diversity category and has one of the five most diverse populations in this model. But it places in the bottom half of countries for all remaining categories [social inclusion, government inclusion, and legal framework] because of poor workplace inclusion, a weak legal framework, and government and social exclusivity. (Society for Human Resource Management, 2009, p. 51)
