This unique Research Handbook covers a wide range of issues that affect the careers of those in diverse groups: age, appearance, disability, gender, race, religion, sexuality and transgender.
This work includes cross-disciplinary contributions from over 50 international academics, researchers, policy-makers, managers and psychologists, who review current thinking, practices, initiatives and developments within diversity and careers research on an international scale. They also consider the implication of diversity legislation for organizations and the individual, providing an insight into the future direction of research and practice. Unlike other research in the field, this work presents wide-ranging and holistic coverage of diverse groups in addition to considering the implication of individuals who appear in multiple categories.
Students, academics and researchers in the fields of human resources, management and employment as well as those whose study encompasses diversity, development and equality will find this Research Handbook to be a useful and insightful read.
'This comprehensive Research Handbook provides an in-depth analysis of thinking and research in the field of diversity and careers. With original contributions from key international scholars, it addresses contemporary issues around individual career development based on eight diversity themes that include "core" areas of gender, age, disability and race as well as new, emergent areas of relevance: appearance, sexuality, religion and transgender. In bringing together scholarship from a range of national contexts and of disciplinary backgrounds, it provides a wide-ranging view of contemporary thinking on diversity and careers and future directions of research.'
