Abstract

In today’s increasing need for a better education system in Nigeria, this study is designed to investigate work diversity among the teaching workforce and its relationship with the overall job satisfaction. A quantitative research method was used for this study. To this end, 57 Nigerian public and private secondary school teachers were asked their views on gender diversity, ethnic diversity and their job satisfaction though a validated questionnaire.

The findings and observations resolve what appeared to be conflicting theories and findings from the research. The researcher analysed the findings in three main parts which includes descriptive statistics, inferential statistics and correlational analysis. The author concludes that there is a major impact of gender diversity and ethnicity diversity on the job satisfaction of teachers in Nigerian secondary schools. Also, when Age, Gender, ethnic diversity and gender diversity are included in the model, gender diversity uniquely predicts job satisfaction of teachers in the sample. However ethnic diversity does not predict job satisfaction of teachers in the same sample of 57 teachers.

Very few researchers have explored the effect of gender and ethnic diversity on job satisfaction in the education sector in Nigeria. Although there are related studies in the banking industries, this study seeks to address this gap.
