The Ivey Casebook Series is a co-publishing partnership between SAGE Publications and the Richard Ivey School of Business at The University of Western Ontario. Due to their popularity in more than 60 countries, approximately 200 new cases are added to the Ivey School of Business library each year. Each of the casebooks comes equipped with instructor's resources on CD-ROM. These affordable collections will not only help students connect to real-world situations, but will benefit corporations seeking continued education in the field as well.    

Cases in Gender & Diversity in Organizations is a compilation of real-life business cases illustrating the unique opportunities and challenges for managers of the new, more demographically diverse workplace.  The Casebook provides a thorough overview of the issues and challenges facing organizations as more women enter the workplace, as parents struggle to create more balance between their work and family lives, and as members of different ethnic groups interact more frequently in work organizations around the world.  Cases in Gender & Diversity in Organizations offers students the opportunity to develop strategies to make effective decisions regarding a wide array of workplace diversity issues. The Casebook offers contemporary managers a clear sense of the relevance and importance of diversity.The instructor's resources on CD-ROM (available upon request) includes detailed 6-10 page casenotes for each case, preparation questions for students to review before class, discussion questions, and suggested further readings.
