Description - The Psychology and Management of Workplace Diversity by Margaret S. Stockdale

The book begins by outlining the demographic forces and legal developments that create the environment in which diversity management is needed. It then presents a series of models that describe and explain the processes involved and examines how diversity has, does and should work with respect to a series of dimensions, including gender, race or ethnicity, age, disability, obesity, sexual orientation and social class. The volume concludes with an extended view that provides guidance on how organizations can change to become more multiculturally inclusive, describes diversity management around the globe, and suggests some strategies for managing diversity. Each chapter presents additional, sometimes controversial, issues in boxes to provoke thought and discussion.
