Diversity Management: Theoretical Perspectives and Practical Approaches $140.00
Authors: Sheying Chen (Pace University, New York, NY, USA) 
Book Description:
As nations become increasingly diverse and globalized, diversity-related issues are posing greater and greater challenges to business managers, nonprofit and government officials, and academic administrators worldwide. They require fundamental changes in the way people think and act, or they may end up being divided rather than united. As a consequence, suffering arises from misunderstandings, distrust and serious conflicts not necessarily serving their own interests. This book examines some of the most important issues related to diversity along with various disciplinary perspectives that may help to deal with those issues. (Imprint: Nova Press)
