Workplace Diversity Issues.
This document contains three symposium papers on workplace diversity issues. "Expanding Theories of Career Development: Adding the Voices of African American Women in the White Academy" (Mary V. Alfred) questions the validity of existing career development models for women and minority groups and examines the professional development of five tenured African American women at predominantly white research universities in a study based on a life history approach. "The Relationship between Selected Variables on Diversity and the Implementation of Diversity as Successful Corporate Culture Change Programs" (Clarence E. Whittenburg, Dennis G. Tesolowski, Melissa H. Marcus, Clinton H. Isbell) reports the results of a study that support the theory that work force diversity initiatives closely aligned with affirmative action initiatives are more likely to result in backlash than those aligned with managing diversity as a business necessity. "Diversity Practitioners--Learning from Experience! Defining the Role and Related Competencies in an Emerging Field of Practice" (Terrence E. Maltbia) describes the process used to test the development and utility of a qualitative research model designed to improve understanding of the competency development process for diversity practitioners doing pioneer work in organizations.
