Summary

Taylor Cox assembles learnings from ten years of teaching, research, and consulting related to cultural diversity in organizations into a comprehensive text for teaching, organization development, and scholarship. The result is a major advance in our understanding of cultural diversity and its effects on organizational behavior and performance.

"In this book, I have assembled learnings from ten years of teaching, research, and consulting related to cultural diversity in organizations," writes Taylor Cox. "My objective is to provide a comprehensive text that would be useful as an aid for teaching, organization development, and scholarship."

The result is a major advance in our understanding of cultural diversity and its effects on organizational behavior and performance. This book:

  • provides the most comprehensive base of knowledge yet assembled on the topic;
  • organizes the material around a powerful new conceptual model that frames the issue in a systematic way;
  • captures the enormous complexity of the topic by examining diversity on three levels of analysis-individual, group, and organizational-and by addressing diversity from multiple perspectives-theory, research, and practice.



"Taylor Cox has done an admirable job in analyzing the what, why, and how of valuing diversity. A must read for all who hope to benefit from the realities of a changing workforce."

--Rosalie L. Tung, The Ming & Stella Wong Professor of International Business, Simon Fraser University
