DIVERSITY: Which efforts work at work? Which don’t?

The authors, who are sociology professors, studied diversity efforts in over 800 U.S. companies to draw conclusions about what works and what doesn’t.  Here are their findings.

Diversity efforts that actually make organizations LESS diverse

  • Mandatory diversity training for managers
  • Testing job applicants
  • Grievance systems

Diversity efforts that help increase diversity

  • Voluntary diversity training
  • Self-managed teams
  • Cross-training
  • College recruitment efforts that target women and minorities
  • Mentoring
  • Diversity task forces
  • Diversity managers
