World Class Diversity Management
IN THIS SUMMARY
In World Class Diversity Management, R. Roosevelt Thomas, Jr. draws from his twenty-five year career in diversity work, interactions with senior-level executives, and personal observations and discoveries to present a collection of frameworks and strategies for managing diversity. Thomas explains that diversity management is a relatively new and unexplored field, one which sits at a critical juncture: it may regress, idle, or develop into a more established discipline. However, the field needs a framework for categorizing its driving factors and their relationships, a system that would provide a scaffold for designing diversity management strategies, and further developing the field in academia.
