A Look into Diversity Management
Instilling a sense of diversity and inclusion in the workplace is a coordinated effort. Upper management coordinates steps to be taken for full integration, middle management disseminates the plan to the lower staff and handles the process directly, and the staff execute the plan and make it work or fail, according to how well the planning was handled. No matter the size of the organisation implementing it, if the transition is not handled properly it will ultimately fail. A solicitor’s attempts to diversify his workforce in his legal firm can fail if he still insists that his legal secretary must be exclusively female, for example. That is why diversity management is a key factor in creating a multicultural, gender-neutral workplace.
