This much-needed companion guides readers through diversity theory and practice. A collaboration of leading diversity thinkers and practitioners consider the importance of contextualizing diversity debates and practices within their historical and cultural contexts: a must-read which appreciates diversity and its management in nuanced, sophisticated and precise ways. – Professor Alison Pullen, Professor of Management and Organization Studies, Macquarie University, Australia
This book should be required reading for any individual involved in diversity management and its systemic challenges. It supports individuals, groups and organizations in a systematic and direct way to navigate concepts and case studies from an inclusivity perspective. With a brilliantly simple introduction, along with chapter objectives, outlines and “stop and reflect” vignettes, the book guides the reader through concepts using a sound and solid strategic framework. A must-read! – Dr Javier Clavere, Berea College, USA
This is a valuable tool for enhancing the transformative power of diversity in organizations of all types. The authors present fresh ways to apply management concepts by examining the nuances and complexities of diversity, presenting each topic in an accessible format that eases learning and practical application. An excellent classroom resource for those working, managing and leading in today's cross-cultural, global environment. – Dr Therese Madden, Notre Dame de Namur University, USA
This is a useful, important book. Its authors urge us to pay more attention to diversity in organizations and help us understand the complexity of how to live diversity in a respectful way. The book opens doors to enriching experiences for students and people in business. Readers are equipped with practical lessons, such as how to achieve diversity in teams and deal with resistance. Engaging and insightful content shows the reader how to overcome barriers and realize inclusiveness at school, work and society at large. – Dr. Sylvia van de Bunt, co-director SERVUS, Servant-Leadership Centre for Research and Education, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, the Netherlands
This book offers a comprehensive coverage of the diversity field. It is an excellent resource for students, researchers, and practitioners alike. The book is practically focused, firmly grounded in cutting edge research and includes up-to-date examples. These authentic examples bring the content to life and make this book a very captivating read. – Dr. Meir Shemla, Associate Professor of Organizational Behavior, Rotterdam School of Management, the Netherlands
I very much welcome the second edition of this book, as it makes a significant contribution to the study of diversity in organizations. It demonstrates recent developments of theoretical concepts and concrete practices, meeting the needs of advanced undergraduate and post-graduate courses. It also offers extremely useful insights that can assist managers and others to implement and improve their diversity management strategies and policies. – Andrea D. Buehrmann, University of Goettingen, Germany
Diversity in Organizations provides an excellent introduction to how to manage diversity and create inclusive organizations. With contributions from leading international experts in the field, this book takes a multidisciplinary approach, balancing different theoretical perspectives, concepts and practices, while also capturing recent challenges and trends. It provides students and anyone in diversity in organizations with useful insights, knowledge and expertise. This is a must-read in the field of diversity. – Cathrine Seierstad, Center for Research in Equality and Diversity (CRED), Queen Mary, University of London, UK
Diversity in Organizations distinguishes itself from other textbooks on diversity by adopting a critical and reflective approach, while still being very accessible and applied. This is exactly what any teacher, who wishes to equip students with the knowledge to understand practices of exclusion and inclusion, and the skills to contribute to developing equitable organisations, needs. – Charlotte Holgersson, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden
Much more than a textbook, this excellently conceived and executed volume welcomes readers into the world of diversity in organizations, cutting through the noise of diversity as mere buzzword. With its intelligently designed format, theory and practice sit comfortably alongside state-of-the-art guidance in this sophisticated work. This is an important resource for those interested in the travels and translations of diversity in organizations around the world. – Marta B. Calás, Professor of Organization Studies and International Management Isenberg School of Management University of Massachusetts - Amherst, USA
This textbook is the answer to four decades of calls from critical scholars for serious attention to be paid to diversity at work. It moves us from simplistic and managerialist prescriptions of managing race, ethnicity and gender to in-depth analyses of the contexts and histories of workplace diversity. We are (finally) treated to serious discussions of how current practices and associated understandings of the conceptualization and treatment of diversity have emerged and the problematization of the issues involved. – Albert J. Mills, Saint Mary’s University, Canada
A wonderful textbook for students and managers looking to acquire diversity and inclusion competencies. The comprehensive collection of chapters, by expert scholars representing a wide array of European countries skilfully weaves together frameworks, visual aids, practical examples, case studies and reflection questions. This textbook is essential reading for anyone interested in understanding diversity challenges or devising organizational strategies for fostering inclusion. – Professor Corinne Post, Professor of Management, Lehigh University, USA
