Diversity in the Workplace. Symposium.
Three papers comprise this symposium on diversity in the workplace. "Factors That Assist and Barriers That Hinder the Success of Diversity Initiatives in Multinational Corporations" (Rose Mary Wentling) reports that factors that assisted in the success were classified under diversity department, human, and work environment; barriers were those of the work environment, of people in corporations, and of diversity initiatives. "Developing Organizational Awareness: Gaining a Distributed View of Organization-Level Change in Workforce Diversity Awareness" (Martin B. Kormanik) shows that using the cycle of awareness development model to examine individual employees' awareness development regarding workforce diversity may serve as a measure for assessing organization-level outcome."Diversity Dialogues in the Workplace: A Study of Implementation Issues" (Martin B. Kormanik, Kim S. Apperson) focuses on a study whose results show that an organization's management can increase participation in a structured diversity dialogue initiative by increasing the status of the initiative. (One way to accomplish this is by directive change--making dialogue participation mandatory.) All papers include substantial references. (YLB)
