Opening Doors to Diversity in Leadership
Opening Doors to Diversity in Leadership uses a psychological, organizational, and cultural framework to help businesses integrate a more diverse presence in leadership. Looking carefully at how current leaders view the relationship between leadership and diverse groups, Opening Doors to Diversity in Leadership examines topics, including recruitment, selection, performance evaluation, succession management, working conditions, and corporate culture, and how they impact hiring, promotion, and retention of diverse groups.
Emphasizing the interlocking relationships between our thoughts and actions, this book stresses the importance of organizational review and self-reflection, the pivotal role of removing unconscious biases from the workplace and identifying the systemic biases embedded in many aspects of human resources management practices.
Opening Doors to Diversity in Leadership provides evidence and options for businesses to build a more diverse workforce, leadership team, and corporate culture.
