Managing Diversity and Inclusion Reviews

Managing Diversity and Inclusion: An International Perspective could not have come at a better time. In tandem with an increasing emphasis on the globalisation of organisations, products and services, there is a critical need for a book that will expand how students and managers alike understand diversity and inclusion beyond the context of the US... Personally, I find this book a piece of work that is both academically valuable and a pleasurable reading... I recommend this book to human resource and diversity management practitioners, policy makers and scholars alike to develop a critical and contextual understanding of contemporary issues of diversity and inclusion.

-- Dennis Gabriel Pepple * European Management Review *
The book edited by our colleagues, Jawad Syed and Mustafa Ozbilgin, is quite refreshing and gives some important critical reflections on the issue of diversity in our contemporary organizations and societies. It deserves to be read by all of us who are interested and deal with Diversity Issues.
-- Jean-Francois Chanlat

This book is an invaluable resource to help employers, managers and policy makers understand the challenges of moving forward in the diversity and inclusion space, and the ways in which to respond to different cultural contexts. It is a much needed piece of work which draws together various experiences and perspective on diversity and inclusion, to help really start thinking, reflecting and moving forward in a way that is not only socially responsible and ethical but also business-oriented. Combining academic work across various disciplines and cultures with numerous organisational examples, the book provides fresh insight to scholars and practitioners to understand this topic and be more confident, proactive and inclusive in their approach to diversity, rather than being constrained and limited to minimal legal compliance.

-- Dianah Worman
Understanding of the depth and complexity of diversity management has grown considerably over the last decade. From a discourse which focused primarily on individualised rights and treatment, academic and professional thinking and writing has built on growing perspectives of workplace and societal cultures and hegemonies so as to inform discussion on addressing some of the more chronic, long-standing issues of under-representation and disadvantage. It is increasingly understood that successful strategies to improve the breadth and depth of diversity in organisations requires pro-active and compelling thinking and understanding, not just a list of dos and don'ts! The authors of this book have detailed and long-standing work and experience of these issues. The book brings together a variety of approaches which will add important context to current issues and debate. -- David Ruebain
