Description

This book investigates the influence of ethnicity on the development of psychological climate perceptions and discusses the implications of this influence on diversity in organizations. Cultivating individuals within corporations to value diversity may prove to be challenging since this process is a cognitive and psychological one. This book regards organizational members' perceptions of their organization as real and suggests that they ought to be taken as such. Consequently, the success of an organization's diversity efforts is contingent on the attention it pays to the perceptions that its members hold not only about human difference but also about issues of diversity within their organization. It is only when members' perceptions are determined that organizations should proceed to employ diversity programs.
