Millennials and Gen-Z have their own definition of Diversity that includes differences in education, personalities and experiences. 

They see diversity as:

the acceptance and embracement of coworkers with differences in education, personalities, skill sets, experiences, and knowledge bases. 

You'll recognise diversity in here in the traditional sense, but with a new emphasis on culture and knowledge.
