Redefining diversity by R. Roosevelt Thomas( )

11 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,819 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By identifying eight options for action, the Diversity Paradigm helps readers assess where their organizations are now and where they would like them to be. Each option has its own risks and repercussions, which Dr. Thomas realistically outlines, and each predicts how an organization will respond to such pressing concerns as How do we create an environment in which all employees and team members, with different backgrounds and personal professional demands, contribute to their full potential?; How do we create a truly global organization?; How can we weave acquisition/merger partners into one effective organization?; How can we enhance our ability to process diverse, complex data?; How can we meet the challenge of visionary leadership for the century to come?

"Building on the Promise of Diversity is Thomas's impassioned wake-up call to bring diversity management to a wholly new level - beyond finger-pointing and well-meaning "initiatives" and toward the shared goal of building robust organizations and thriving communities. This original, thoughtful, yet action-oriented book will help leaders in any setting - business, religious, educational, governmental, community groups, and more - break out of the status quo and reinvigorate the can-do spirit of making things better."--Jacket
World class diversity management : a strategic approach by R. Roosevelt Thomas( )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With demographic shifts and globalization transforming the nature of relationships, interactions, and decision making, excellence in diversity management is more important than ever. However, the field of diversity has no established standard for evaluating what constitutes best practices, nor has there been any agreement on what the most fundamental philosophies, principles, and concepts are--until now. In this pioneering book R. Roosevelt Thomas, one of our most distinguished diversity theorists and practitioners, proposes a framework that will enable the development of a truly world-class diversity management capability. It was the development of such standards in manufacturing that enabled companies to strategically pursue excellence in this area. A world-class approach to diversity management must be applicable anywhere in the world, be able to address any possible issue, facilitate comparison of different concepts and practices, and focus on the entire field of diversity rather than specific dimensions such as race or gender. These requirements are amply met by Thomas's Four Quadrant model and his Strategic Diversity Management Process{u2122}. Thomas first analyzes each of four quadrants--managing workforce demographic representation, managing demographic relationships, managing diverse talent, and managing strategic mixtures--exploring the goals, motives, approaches, accomplishments, and challenges associated with each. And he reveals the unrecognized paradigm or mind-set that lies behind each quadrant's express purpose. Once he has laid out the broad range of diversity management strategies, Thomas discusses how to realize them. He offers an overview of the Strategic Diversity Management Process--by far the most effective framework for implementation. He also examines the on-the-ground dynamics of implementing each of the strategies and their associated paradigms by incorporating a case study of a CEO, a composite of the many executives Thomas has worked with

The book concludes with some recommendations that will benefit all concerned"--cortezhill www.amazon.com
