Managing the Diverse Organization: The Imperative for a New Multicultural Paradigm
Author: RICHARD D. WHITE, JR., PH.D.
Published in PAM, Vol. 4 No. 4
The effects of cultural diversity on organizational behavior are
complex and powerful. What is diversity and what are the goals in
achieving a more diverse society? Are there organizations that operate
more efficiently with a homogeneous workforce while other organizations
are more efficient with a heterogenous workforce? This essay examines the
shift in emphasis from assimilating minorities to acknowledging
raciocultural and gender differences. The essay suggests strategies for
managing multicultural organizations and argues that a new multicultural
paradigm is necessary.
