Workplace Diversity and Public Policy: Challenges and Opportunities for Psychology
Fassinger, Ruth E.
American Psychologist, v63 n4 p252-268 May-Jun 2008
This article outlines both challenges and opportunities for psychology of issues related to diversity in education and work. For the purposes of this discussion, "diverse" populations include four groups currently marginalized and disadvantaged in the U.S. workplace: women, people of color, sexual minorities, and people with disabilities. An overview of employment participation patterns for these groups is presented, workplace barriers arising from marginalized status are highlighted, and the article concludes with a discussion of work-related legislative and public policy fronts that can be informed and influenced by the contributions of psychologists. (Contains 1 figure and 3 footnotes.)
