Klappentext

A comprehensive and critical review of the global scholarly literature on diversity, this book presents findings from original UK-based research involving in-depth organizational case studies, interviews, observation and documentary data from over fifty organizations. Analyzing the findings from the perspective of key stakeholder groups - diversity practitioners, line-managers, trade union equality officers, workplace trade union representatives and employees, it addresses a range of questions, including: * How is the diversity concept developing in the UK? * Has the UK deconstructed and reconstructed the diversity concept to fit with the legal, social and economic context of UK organizations? * How are organizations in the public and private sectors responding in practical terms to the diversity concept? * What is the legacy of the traditional equal opportunity concept? * What are the experiences of different organizational stakeholders of diversity management? * Whose interests does diversity management serve? Looking at many of the weaknesses associated with more traditional equal opportunity policy approaches, this book is excellent reading for all students of international business, entrepreneurship and small businesses.
