Diversity in the Workplace [in HRD].
These four papers are from a symposium that was facilitated by Laura Bierema at the 1995 conference of the Academy of Human Resource Development (HRD). "The Status of Valuing and Managing Diversity in Fortune 500 Manufacturing and Fortune 500 Service Organizations: Perceptions of Top Human Resource Professionals" (Sandra J. Johnson) reports a study that established a broad definition of diversity and a rationale for going beyond discriminatory, reactive, legalistic, or nonsystemic approaches to dealing with work force diversity; determined a list of common HRD components; and examined business factors related to diversity development efforts. "A Theory of Diversity" (Christopher Washington) presents a theory that provides a psychological rationale for why diversity is related to performance in groups. "Work Force Diversity in Fortune 500 Corporations Headquartered in Minnesota: Concepts and Practices" (Karin Tomervik) reports a study that provides a conceptual framework for designing, implementing, and evaluating a work force diversity plan. "Race and Ethnicity-Related Cultural Diversity Training Programs: A Typology" (Larry G. Martin) presents a typology that identifies five types of programs: assimilation-acculturation, cultural awareness, multicultural, ethnocentrist, and antiracist. (YLB)
