Managing diversity in the workplace should be the concern of every public servant. In order to survive, an organization needs to be able to manage and utilize its diversity for creating advantages and its benefits. Managing diversity in the workplace should be a part of the culture of the entire organization. It is imperative to note that in spite of every effort made at different sectors of society including the Sustainable development goals, Constitution of Kenya 2010, the disparities in gender, age, ethnicity & culture continue to grow. The objective of the study was to determine the influence of education diversity on service delivery among employees in Kanduyi Sub-County. A case Study design was used in the study. The target population was 1,218 employees of the county government of Bungoma from Kanduyi Sub-County as per the county public service board.  Stratified random sampling was used to sample 301 respondents from the target population of 1,218.
