Abstract

Explores the concept of diversity in organisational settings, reviewing a variety of key and associated concepts. The concept of diversity is explained as being context dependent, selective and relative. The links between diversity and performance are discussed and the implications for diversity supportive organisational development are explored. The need for support policies, networks, mentors and role models is identified. Finally the issues, barriers and implications associated with the introduction of diversity training are investigated.
