Reviews

'Diversity is often thought of as an American issue colored in black and white. This book focuses on diversity in Europe, sprinkling the colors of culture, gender, and inclusiveness throughout the discussion with an eye towards strategic organizational goals. There is much to learn from this book about how we should think about diversity…in a broad and inclusive way.' - Katherine W. Phillips, Paul Calello Professor of Leadership and Ethics, Columbia Business School, USA
'A must read for all people, students, employees and managers alike, concerned with the persistence of inequality (regimes) in organizations. Diversity in Organizations provides theoretically well informed and practice-oriented, step-by-step guidelines for the development of surprisingly dynamic diversity policies and practices in contemporary organizations.' - Dr. Ida Sabelis, VU University Amsterdam, Netherlands and Joint Editor-In-Chief for Gender, Work and Organization 'This book covers the full complexity and importance of diversity and inclusion in organizations in an excellent way. It is compulsory reading for any diversity practitioner or manager working in Europe.' - Dr. Pia Höök, Diversity Director at Volvo Group and Senior lecturer at Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden
'Diversity in Organizations is an engaging new book that should be required reading for students and scholars alike. It provides clear explanations of 21st century diversity theory and concepts directed towards effective practice, with lively cases bringing issues to life. Enjoy!' - Judith Pringle, Professor of Organisation Studies and Co-ordinator, Gender & Diversity Research Group, Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand
