Opportunities and Challenges of Workplace Diversity teaches students to uncover and understand the complexities of managing diversity through a unique dialogue of opportunity. Through its three-tiered structure this text effectively explains the complexities of managerial and legal aspects in workplace diversity; presents examples of positive and negative management methods; encourages students to develop a set of skills they will need when managing diversity in their future careers.

The second edition contains many meaningful changes—a new chapter, new and updated opening essays, enhanced exercises, and new newspaper articles and case studies—that will enhance the quality of learning about diversity in organizations.
