MB 336H - Diversity and Discrimination in the American Workplace: Is the Melting Pot Boiling Over?


Credits: 3
An interdisciplinary examination of the many challenges and issues raised by the growing diversity and multiculturalism of the North American workplace. The course provides a historical introduction to the patterns of immigration that affected different workplaces and offers an overview of the legal structures that deal with questions of difference in work organizations (e.g., the Equal Employment Opportunity Act). Students examine how organization structures and cultures influence the reception, inclusion, and experiences of different social identity groups along dimensions of gender, race, age, ethnicity, religion, and sexual orientation. Current debates on related controversial issues such as affirmative action and the role of white privilege are also addressed. This course covers the following dimensions for studying management and business in context: I, II, III, VI.
