What we know as our social existence is determined by the overall structure of our society. Structure refers to the social norms and institutions that shape us human beings and society as a whole. Can limit or influence the choices and opportunities that we possess. Norms and institutions include class, religion and economic forces. Agency on the other hand refers to the capacity that individuals possess to act independently and make personal choices, it's more free willed. Diversity embraces acceptance and respect, based on the understanding that each individual is unique and recognizes individual differences, like race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs, or other ideologies.
