However, the field of diversity has no established standard for evaluating what constitutes best practices, nor has there been any agreement on what the most fundamental philosophies, principles, and concepts are - until now. In this pioneering book R. Roosevelt Thomas, one of our most distinguished diversity theorists and practitioners, proposes a framework that will enable the development of a truly world-class diversity management capability.

Thomas first analyzes each of four quadrants - managing workforce demographic representation, managing demographic relationships, managing diverse talent, and managing strategic mixtures - exploring the goals, motives, approaches, accomplishments, and challenges associated with each. And he reveals the unrecognized paradigm or mind-set that lies behind each quadrants express purpose This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
