What is the best way for companies that employ diverse workers to exploit these workers' backgrounds and views

Most larger employers preach diversity and many of them have programs in place designed to attract, hire and employ people of various ethnicities, nationalities, races, genders, ages, socioeconomic status, sexual orientations, and physical capabilities. Their diversity statements commonly mention that they beleive that there is tremendous value in the free exchange of new ideas and approaches that can come from employing qualified people whose lives and experiences differ from those of the workers they have "traditionally" employed. My experience, however, has been that once hired, diverse workers are expected not to make waves and do things exactly the way they were done in the past. Different views are shunned and different approaches are punished. Rarely have I seen an eclectic and integrative approach taken by these employers. So although diverse workers have better access to "good" jobs than before, it seems their diversity, once beneficial is now detrimental. Your thoughts? Please define "diversity" broadly. Thanks, Everyone!
