Abstract

The ability to effectively manage workforce diversity is an increasingly important task for most organizations. Despite the fact that numerous organizations have implemented some form of diversity management, guidance from research has been limited. The present study tests a theory of diversity management that suggests managing employee perceptions of threat and fairness is critical to successful implementation. The current study finds support for the theory, and demonstrates that the actions of top leadership and the structures, polices, and practices implemented around diversity, have an important impact on fairness perceptions, which in turn impact employee perceptions of diversity management efforts.
