Description

Managing Workplace Diversity and Inclusion provides a comprehensive overview to understanding and managing diversity in the workplace. Intended for upper-level undergraduates as well as graduate students in Psychology and Human Resources Management, this textbook introduces readers to the concept of diversity as well as relevant theoretical topics including oppression, power, and the social construction of difference.

Rooted in a psychological approach, it applies relevant psychological methods to understanding diversity issues within organizations, covering topics such as diversity training, mentoring, group dynamics, employment law, and organizational change. Each chapter presents engaging scenarios and concludes with relevant questions to stimulate learning and help students conceptualize and contextualize diversity in the workplace.
