Read Chapters 13. This chapter discusses how diversity and inclusion are crucial for organizations that are driven by changing workforce demographics and an emphasis on teamwork. Diversity encompasses not only demographic differences but also psychological and organizational distinctions among individuals, impacting team dynamics along dimensions of variety, separation, and disparity. Effectively managed diversity, supported by programs like diversity training and inclusive leadership, can counter biases and discrimination, and enhance team performance by leveraging deep-level diversity and fostering inclusive climates.
