Building upon the bold ideas presented in his seminal bestseller Beyond Race and Gender, Dr. R. Roosevelt Thomas demonstrates how diversity is far more than a human resources or affirmative action issue. His new "Diversity Paradigm" embraces and enhances all areas of business, especially those that are dauntingly complex.
By identifying eight options for action, the Diversity Paradigm helps readers assess where their organizations are now and where they would like them to be. Each option has its own risks and repercussions, which Dr. Thomas realistically outlines, and each predicts how an organization will respond to such pressing concerns as How do we create an environment in which all employees and team members, with different backgrounds and personal professional demands, contribute to their full potential?; How do we create a truly global organization?; How can we weave acquisition/merger partners into one effective organization?; How can we enhance our ability to process diverse, complex data?; How can we meet the challenge of visionary leadership for the century to come?
