Abstract:
Successful management of today’s increasingly diverse workforce is among the most important global challenges faced by corporate leaders. Exclusion is among the most critical and pressing problems faced by today's heterogeneous workforce. Using an original model for creating a globally inclusive workplace with case studies, the book outlines strategies for unleashing the embedded potential in a multicultural and diverse global workforce.

It offers 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, the autor organizes the book into three parts:
Part 1 covers the macro or large systems perspective, including demographic, legislative and social policy trends around the world;
Part 2 covers the 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 3 presents solutions for management and leadership, practical interventions, diversity paradigms, and an overview of the inclusive workplace model with practical examples of organizational case studies.
