Description & Coverage
Description:

Diversity in the workforce can be attributed to both a popular, cultural shift and legislative intervention. Despite these forces, discrimination endures in all aspects of Western society from education to employment. Unequal pay and opportunities for promotion are symptoms of a systematic discrimination of individuals based on race and gender.

The Handbook of Research on Race, Gender, and the Fight for Equality provides a critical look at race, gender, and modern day discrimination. Focusing on workplace and educational dynamics, the research found within this book addresses equal opportunity and diversity requirements from a myriad of perspectives. This book is an essential reference source for professionals and researchers working in equality as well as managers and those in leadership roles.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Digital Equality
  • Diversity and Innovation
  • Diversity and Social Media
  • International Students
  • Leadership
  • Media Representation
  • Mobile Commerce
  • Social Capital
