Claretha Hughes (University of Arkansas, USA) and DeVaughn Stephens (University of Arkansas, USA)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-4666-1812-1.ch015

The objectives of this chapter are to 1) introduce the idea of leveraging diversity through a career development paradigm shift and 2) to offer researchers ways to further explore this shift in thinking and enhance organizational and individual career development strategies. The suggestion is not for organizational leaders to choose diverse employees over others, but that they acknowledge and understand all employees and use that knowledge to enhance and improve organizational performance. To accomplish organizational success through career development, they must acknowledge the value of all employees.
