Handbook of research methods in diversity management, equality and inclusion at work by Regine Bendl( )

10 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) have become features of organizations as a result of both legal and societal advances as well as neoliberal economic reasoning. While current research approaches frequently fall short of addressing the challenges faced in EDI research, this benchmark Handbook brings coverage of research methods in EDI up to date, and advances the development of research in the field. Bringing together well-known academics and researchers, this Handbook is a distillation of current and novel research in the field of EDI. Chapters present groundbreaking new research and methodological perspectives on international, regional and national issues, from equal opportunities and gender mainstreaming to managing diversity in legal, political and socio-economic contexts. Alongside this, the authors discuss new analytic directions to advance empirical EDI research. This Handbook will help to shape the present and future EDI discourse. The book is an invaluable addition to the current literature, particularly for students of EDI and researchers working in the fields of human resource management, strategic management and organization, and culture and change management as well as entrepreneurship and marketing
Research handbook of international and comparative perspectives on diversity management( )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Research Handbook offers, for the first time, a comparative approach to current diversity management concerns facing nations. Spanning 19 countries and across Africa, it covers age, gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, national origin and the intersection of various dimensions of diversity. The multicultural and multi-country teams of contributors, leading scholars in their own countries, examine how the various actors react, adopt and manage the different dimensions of diversity, from a multitude of approaches, from national to sectoral and from tribes to trade unions, but always with a comparative, multi-country perspective. This book represents the efforts of multicultural and multi-country teams of contributors who are prominent diversity scholars in their respective countries. Offering comparative approaches to diversity management and comparative public policy on multiculturalism, it explores comparisons at both the macro-environmental and meso-organizational levels. Topics covered include pan-African tribal diversity management, diversity in the South Pacific, youth labour market exclusion and LGBTQ rights in selected countries. This comprehensive review of diversity management will appeal to both academics and graduate students as well as to public policy-makers, industry practitioners, top leadership, middle managers and HR managers

The discipline dilemma in Rainbow High School by Lize Booysen( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rainbow High School, an English medium school located in Johannesburg has vastly changed since South Africa's 1994 post-election period. Whereas it used to be an Afrikaans medium school with predominantly white learners and teaching faculty, by 2000 its population shifted to having 80% people of colour. This development in demographics has caused issues of racial conflicts and violence over the last few years, which prompts the school's principal to take action and reach out to a diversity management expert. The case examines the collaborative efforts between the consulting expert and her team and the school's staff members to create a project that will bring everyone in agreement on strategies regarding issues of diversity in Rainbow High School

Comparative equality and diversity: main findings and research gaps( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

<Title><x>Abstract</x></title><sec><title>Purpose</title>- This is a special issue introduction on cross-cultural and comparative diversity management (DM). The purpose of this paper is to present five articles that explore and examine some of the complexities of equality and DM in various countries around the world.</sec><sec><title>Design/methodology/approach</title>- In this introductory paper, the authors provide an overview and the current state of literature on comparative research on equality and diversity. The authors also gathered a list of indices that is helpful as secondary data for informing comparative and cross-national research in this domain.</sec><sec><title>Findings</title>- To date, comparative work involving two or more countries is scarce with Canada/USA comparisons first appearing in the 1990s, followed by other groupings of countries a decade later. Existing comparative work has started to uncover the dialectics of voluntary and mandated action: both complement each other, although the order in which they appear vary from context to context. This work also acknowledges that there are varying degrees of intensity in the way that legislations may constrain employer action in encouraging a more diverse workforce, and that there is more than a binary choice between blind equality of rights (identity blind) and quota-based policies (affirmative action) available to decision makers.</sec><sec><title>Originality/value</title>- The comparative nature of these papers allows the reader to compare and contrast the different approaches to the adoption and implementation of DM. The authors also draw attention to several areas in cross-cultural DM research that have been understudied and deserve attention.</sec>
Innovative Leadership as Enabling Function Within Organizations: A Complex Adaptive System Approach( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Innovation is vital for organizational thriving in the complex reality of the 21st century. Leadership that flourished in stable environments may need to adapt to support thriving in a new globalized era. What does this type of leadership look like, and how does it function? The current article suggests that such an adaptation may be best expressed through leadership "as enabling function" within the organization as a complex adaptive system
