Diversity at Work: The Practice of Inclusion

How can organizations, their leaders, and their people benefit from diversity? The answer, according to this cutting-edge book, is the practice of inclusion. Diversity at Work: The Practice of Inclusion (a volume in SIOP's Professional Practice Series) presents detailed solutions for the challenge of inclusion—how to fully connect with, engage, and empower people across all types of differences. Its editors and chapter authors—all topic experts ranging from internal and external change agents to academics—effectively translate theories and research on diversity into the applied practice of inclusion. Readers will learn about the critical issues involved in framing, designing, and implementing inclusion initiatives in organizations and supporting individuals to develop competencies for inclusion. The authors' diverse voices combine to provide an innovative and expansive model of the practice of inclusion and to address its key aspects at the individual, group, and organizational levels. The book, designed to be a hands-on resource, provides case studies and illustrations to show how diversity and inclusion operate in a variety of settings, effectively highlighting the practices needed to benefit from diversity. This comprehensive handbook:

  • Explains how to conceptualize, operationalize, and implement inclusion in organizations.
  • Connects inclusion to multiple dimensions of diversity (including gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, social class, religion, profession, and many others) in integrative ways, incorporating specific and relevant examples.
  • Includes models, illustrations, and cases showing how to apply the principles and practices of inclusion.
  • Addresses international and multicultural perspectives throughout, including many examples.
  • Provides practitioners with key perspectives and tools for thinking about and fostering inclusion in a variety of organizational contexts.
  • Provides HR professionals, industrial-organizational psychologists, D&I practitioners, and those in related fields—as well as anyone interested in enhancing the workplace—with a one-stop resource on the latest knowledge regarding diversity and the practice of inclusion in organizations.

This vital resource offers a clear understanding of and a way to navigate the challenges of creating and sustaining inclusion initiatives that truly work.
