Abstract: igher educational institutions (HEIs) around theworld are noted for finding solutions to a myriad of problems confronting humanity through research and innovation. In achieving this, HEIs bring together people of diverse backgrounds, expertise, and experi- ence worldwide to work together, making diversity in the workforce of HEIs an important factor. Diversity deals with creating an organizational culture of inclu- sion, in which differences are valued and accepted. In African HEI governance, diversity and inclusion are even more paramount, as people with different charac- teristics must be managed. These include people with different ethnic background, as Africans have several ethnicity and different cultural norms. People may have religious differences, gender differences, age differences and differences in terms of diability status among several others.
