With more women, people of color, people with disabilities, and immigrant populations entering the job setting, workplace diversity is an area of great concern. Workplace Diversity is an insightful new book for social work professionals to examine the complex issues involved in workplace diversity and to learn a practical method for applying an organizational change process that is truly inclusive of diverse groups. With nearly half of the 28 chapters written by people of color, people with disabilities, and gay men and lesbians, this unique volume gives you a comprehensive understanding of the depth and breadth of issues involved. You'll discover how history and cultural attributes of diverse groups must be understood for effective change to take place. You'll see examples of skills, areas, policies, and process that can foster a culture that affirms diversity. You'll learn about interventions that can help you manage diversity in your agency. And you'll see how, by focusing on improving interpersonal relationships, communication structure and policy, and organizational culture, you can help create new systems that include marginalized members. A state-of-the-art treatment of this issue relevant to every human services setting. Special Features * Perspectives rarely included in diversity literature, such as communications, including a discussion on ebonics, and ADA concerns for students in internships living with disabilities * Cutting-edge research and subjects, including employment assistance issues, developmental mentoring relationships, African Americans and entrepreneurship, and Latino communication diversity * White racial identity attitudes that affect workplace culture and outcomes * Range of representations of diversity, such as race, ethnicity, gender, immigration status, and disability.
