Providing comprehensive coverage of the field of diversity, equality, equity and inclusion (DEI), this timely Encyclopedia addresses significant developments in diversity management. Between them, the 78 entries cover interdisciplinary, theoretical, mainstream and critical approaches to construct a complete picture of this crucial approach to business practice.

With contributions from leading and emerging international experts, the Encyclopedia of Equality, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion explores previously overlooked topics such as class and microaggression alongside ever-evolving concepts including affirmative action and employment equity. Growing concerns like continued workplace prejudice and indirect and systemic discrimination are addressed in order to detail the contemporary importance of DEI.

This volume will be a vital resource for academics and students focusing on diversity in business, international management and human resources. Due to its practical implications, it will also benefit practitioners and managers seeking to better understand diversity and management.
