Paludi Edits Book Set on Workplace Diversity
Michele Paludi, Elihu Root Peace Fund Visiting Professor of Women’s Studies, has edited a four-volume book set for Praeger Publishers. Managing Diversity in Today's Workplace: Strategies for Employees and Employers provides updated empirical research and best practices for understanding and managing workplace diversity in the 21st century, including issues of gender, race, generation, disability, sexual orientation, national origin and age.
According to Paludi, as U.S. workplace demographics continue evolving to include more women employees, a growing percentage of aged employees and greater racial diversity, a broad understanding of human resource management issues in multiple functions is necessary. Managing Diversity provides workplace professionals with up-to-date information on best practices for issues such as staffing, training and development, performance appraisals, work/family integration, compensation, health and safety, equal employment opportunity, disciplinary strategies and labor relations.
