Abstract [en]

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at Work is certainly a recommended read for EDI scholars interested in both established and novel perspectives on the field. . . Practitioners, whether directly involved with diversity management or not, can also use this volume to gain significant insight into the variety of perspectives on diversity management and training. Florence Villesèche, Management This collection can serve as a mirror for all of us who spend much of our lives in work organizations. From diverse vantage points, the authors help us see and understand the dynamics through which workplaces are gendered to the advantage of some and the disadvantage of others. For those of us wanting to transform those dynamics and create organizational cultures characterized by fairness, support, and cooperation, this book is a must-read. Jay Coakley, University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, US Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at Work, edited by Mustafa F. Özbilgin is a fascinating and useful collection of articles that cover varied perspectives on this thriving topic. Theoretical issues and policy problems, equal opportunity and diversity management, sociological and psychological approaches, history and present management and trade union efforts, and much more are all covered. I particularly appreciated the inclusion of several articles on men, masculinities, equality and diversity, a refreshing recognition of the importance of men and masculinities in the success or failure of equality and diversity efforts. Although the collection covers the UK in the most detail, chapters on the US, Germany, South Africa, and Japan provide a multinational perspective. It s the kind of book I d like to have at hand when I m writing about organizations, gender, equality and diversity. Joan Acker, University of Oregon, US With over thirty chapters, this book offers a truly interdisciplinary collection of original contributions that are likely to influence theorization in the field of equality, diversity and inclusion at work. Many chapters in the book offer comparative perspectives through cross-national and multi-level analyses. The volume adopts a critical perspective as it focuses on relations of power in exploring equality, diversity and inclusion at work. Specifically, the authors examine areas such as cultural conflict, gender inequity and politics, work life balance, affirmative action, trade unions and diversity and diversity interventions and change. This timely book with chapters that are contributed by internationally eminent scholars will prove to be an invaluable resource for researchers, policy makers and students in this field.
