Nowadays, managing and promoting diversity is of paramount importance to the future of sustainability and henceforth gain increasing importance on the political and business agenda. Even though diversity management scholarship has grown tremendously over the past years, a strong consensus has emerged on existing theories tendency to focus on a single level of analysis, on a limited range of usually Western research settings, and despite the agenda around intersectionality, on a relatively narrow range of types of diversity. Diversity research has insofar focused on prioritizing visible forms of diversity, such as gender diversity or disability, with less emphasis placed on diversity in culture and values and across countries.
The need for publishing the two volumes, Diversity within diversity management: Country-based perspectives and Diversity within diversity: Types of Diversity in Organizations has emerged due to the lack of understanding as to how diversity and equality are managed in different national contexts. Focusing on workplace equality, diversity, and inclusion, the collection of chapters (conceptual, theoretical, or empirical articles) brings together a unique blend of scholarly research and professional practice, evidenced through an array of individuals both outside and inside organizations.
