|Title: ||Towards sustainable diversity in organizations: Lessons from good diversity management practices|
|Authors: ||ZANONI, Patrizia|
|Issue Date: ||2008|
|Citation: ||SUS.DIV Annual Meeting, Bratislava (Slovakia), September 3-5 2008.|
|Abstract: ||This chapter intends to make a contribution to the diversity management literature by inductively identifying organizational practices leading to ‘sustainable’ diversity. In order to do so, we draw on three ‘best’ cases: a dental clinic in Sweden, a call centre in Belgium, and a wellness company in The Netherlands. We qualify diversity as sustainable to refer to its social and economic viability over a longer time (WCED, 1987). In the context of this paper, successful organizational practices are those which create a diversity-friendly context in the short-term yet avoid achieving this in ways that undermine their capacity to do so in the future.|
