As businesses, schools, and other organizations become increasingly diverse, the people charged with creating change within these organizations need proven methods for leveraging diversity as a resource. But how do you transform an organization with a deeply rooted monolithic culture into an organization that is multicultural? This book captures leading–edge theory and practice to offer a systematic, comprehensive model for change that will help you unleash all of the human potential that exists in your organization. With detailed examples, an in–depth case study, discussion questions in each chapter, and much more, Creating the Multicultural Organization shows you how to:
  • Understand why many past efforts to manage diversity have failed
  • Implement strong leadership of diversity change efforts
  • Leverage research and develop measurement plans
  • Create effective ongoing education
  • Align management practices and policies with the goals of multiculturalism
  • Follow through to ensure sustainable results
