Organizations need not sacrifice workplace diversity in the quest for positive global reputation and profit. On the contrary, attention to social identity "difference" in the workplace drives organizations in deep, far reaching and measurable ways. Practical and Theoretical Implications of Successfully Doing Difference in Organizations critically interrogates power and meanings of ""difference,"" suggests avenues for building theory about ""difference,"" and offers reasons why real commitment to diversity is needed; an endeavor that requires conscious and sustained effort. Donnalyn Pompper has spent over a decade teaching, researching, and publishing about social identity dimensions in the workplace and in media representations. She offers a multidisciplinary approach to considering social identity intersectionalities at work. This is a core stand-alone book for organizational communication, business/management, research methods, classes of advanced undergraduate and graduate students, as well as a font of practical advice for organizations' managers. User-friendly chapters include applied sidebars, key term definitions, and questions for critical thinking and personal reflection.
