Organisations across the private, public, and not-for-profit sectors require active Diversity, Equality and Inclusion (DEI) policies and programs, and are increasingly subject to meeting legislative standards around the DEI principles of equal opportunity, anti-discrimination, and human rights. Bringing together more than 20 insightful contributions from a diverse range of researchers, this dynamic Field Guide examines the theories, practices, and policies of diversity management.

Reflective of its purpose to illustrate the breadth of DEI research, the Field Guide features a diversity of perspectives from early career and postgraduate researchers through to established scholars. Chapters cover a broad spectrum of personal demographics linked to DEI, exploring age, gender, disability, sexuality, and migrant status throughout both advanced and emerging economies, as well as analysing how the intersectionality of individual factors may reinforce advantage and disadvantage. Expansive and innovative, the book expertly integrates empirical case studies with cutting-edge research processes.

The broad scope of research field approaches, methods, and tips featured in this Field Guide will be of significant interest to undergraduate and postgraduate students of human resources management and development. Researchers from business, NGOs, and the public sector will also receive critical insights on diversity management in a range of national and micro-organisational contexts.
Critical Acclaim
‘A Field Guide to Managing Diversity, Equality and Inclusion in Organisations is an exciting new resource for academic and industry researchers in the diversity, equity and inclusion space. It provides readers with an extremely broad and esoteric series of case studies and DEI issues, research reports, and suggestions for future research directions, including practical research tips, methodological guidance and implications for policymakers at global, local and industry levels.’
– Alan Nankervis, Curtin University and Torrens University, Australia
