Ethical Dimensions of Diversity


Volume: 5

February 1997 | 200 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
"This is a fascinating and mind-stretching discussion. Very original analysis of the ethics-diversity relationship and process model . . . . The authorÆs examples of the changes in one organization over a 10-year period are striking . . . . Makes a distinct contribution . . . . Allows the reader to go beyond the current models and keep the focus on organizational culture and management practices." --Patricia Arredondo, Founder and Director, Empowerment Workshops, Inc., Boston, Massachusetts Will increased diversity in the workplace lead to greater deviation from corporate ethical standards? Can the codes of ethics in U.S. corporations effectively govern employee ethical standards? Few, if any, of the current books on ethics in the American workplace consider the ethical concerns in an environment characterized by diversity. Ethical Dimensions of Diversity takes an in-depth look at the relationship between the many kinds of diversityùincluding cultural, racial, ethnic, and a variety of othersùand the ways they affect decision making within organizations. Author Willie E. Hopkins provides a theoretical overview, and also identifies points of potential conflict and subsequent effects on individual/organizational ethical paradigms, as well as suggesting possible ways of reconciling these conflicts. Ethical Dimensions of Diversity gives students and professionals the analytical skills and sensitivity necessary for dealing with the difficult combination of ethics and diversity, while also providing the practical application that business ethicists, and human resource professionals need.
