Managing Diversity: Toward a Globally Inclusive Workplace
First Edition: Winner of the 2006 Outstanding Academic Title Award from CHOICE Magazine and the 2007 Academy of Management′s George R. Terry Book Award for "outstanding contribution to the advancement of management knowledge"
Successful management of today's increasingly diverse workforce is among the most important global challenges faced by corporate leaders, human resource managers, and management consultants. In the third edition of this award-winning book, MichÓlle E. Mor Barak argues that exclusion is among the most critical and pressing problems faced by today's heterogeneous workforce. Offering an original model for creating a globally inclusive workplace, coupled with engaging real-world case studies, she outlines unique strategies for unleashing the embedded potential in a multicultural and diverse global workforce.
In addition, Managing Diversity, Third Edition offers original and comprehensive yet succinct coverage of the contemporary and historical foundations that have led to today's practice of managing diversity in the workplace. Using a global approach to examine key issues and explore effective solutions, Mor Barak organizes the book into three parts: part I covers the macro or large systems perspective, including demographic, legislative and social policy trends around the world; part II covers the micro/mezzo or smaller systems perspective, including the theoretical foundations for inclusion and exclusion in work groups and organizations as well as interpersonal relationships and cross-cultural communication; and, part Ill presents solutions for management and leadership vis-Ó-vis diversity, practical interventions, diversity paradigms, and a complete overview of the inclusive workplace model with practical examples of organizational case studies.
