Description - Managing a Diverse Workforce by Gary N. Powell

Managing a Diverse Workforce provides a comprehensive set of learning activities that address issues related to workplace diversity. Participation in these exercises helps students gain a greater appreciation of the wide range of issues that arise when people classify themselves or are classified by others as members of different groups, on whatever basis. More than half of the 30 learning activities are new to this Third Edition. The learning activities have several noteworthy features: - They explore the impact of diversity on the basis of numerous personal characteristics, including gender, race, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, physical and mental abilities, national culture, religion, socioeconomic status, education, appearance, weight, marital status, and parental status. - They address pre-organizational and organizational entry issues as well as issues that arise in the workplace. - They examine issues pertaining to individuals' work and personal lives and to society as a whole. - They consider what it is like to manage, be managed by, and work with diverse others as peers. - They offer powerful learning experiences that involve individuals, groups, and entire classes or training programs. - They offer different types of learning experiences, including diagnostic instruments, role plays, and simulations. - They draw upon many types of work settings, including both business and not-for-profit organizations. - Managing a Diverse Workforce is a perfect companion to core texts in workforce diversity, managing diversity, and human resource development, including Gary Powell's Women and Men in Management, Fourth Edition.
