Abstract: Diversity in terms of race/ethnicity, gender, age, ability, sexual orientation, or nationality has become a reality that contemporary organizations must face. The increase in migration patterns across national borders has further exacerbated the need for academics to address questions that arise from diversity. Several approaches for mitigating diversity are suggested in the literature, including colorblindness, pluralism, multiculturalism, and polyculturalism. The symposium will address the broader challenge of how to effectively institutionalize diversity in the workplace. We hope that answering some of the issues raised will lead to the creation of new knowledge that will deepen our understanding of workplace diversity.
