Workforce Diversity. Symposium 14. [Concurrent Symposium Session at AHRD Annual Conference, 2000.]
Three presentations are provided from Symposium 14, Workforce Diversity, of the Academy of Human Resource Development (HRD) 2000 Conference Proceedings. "Cross-Organizational vs. Localized Participation: A Case Study on Workplace Diversity Dialogues Implementation" (Martin B. Kormanik, Daniel A. Krieger, Timothy E. Tilghman) compares dialogue from participants drawn from across the organization with others drawn from one organizational component. Discussion highlights strategies for implementation in the workplace, implications for practitioners, and suggestions for research. "Evaluation of Diversity Initiatives in Multinational Corporations" (Rose Mary Wentling) describes a study of eight multinational corporations and reports that, despite difficulty in determining the impact of diversity initiatives, corporations are making efforts to come up with measurements that can lead them to confirm the value that diversity initiatives have to the organization's profitability. "Change: The Japanese Workplace and the Aging Workforce" (Mary E. Repass, Letitia A. Combs) explores new trends that are occurring and have developed in the Japanese workplace; contributes to the understanding of changes occurring in the lives of the Japanese older worker; highlights the challenges and choices of future work for older adults in Japan; and generates research questions on the roles and workplace options for older adults. The papers contain reference sections. (YLB)
