Cases in Gender & Diversity in Organizations



February 2006 | 264 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Cases in Gender and Diversity in Organizations is a compilation of real-life business cases illustrating the unique opportunities and challenges for managers of the new, more demographically diverse workplace. The casebook provides a thorough overview of the issues and challenges facing organizations as more women enter the workplace, as parents struggle to create more balance between their work and family lives, and as members of different ethnic groups interact more frequently in work organizations around the world.
