Nowadays, managing and promoting diversity is of paramount importance to
the future of sustainability and henceforth gain increasing importance on
the political and business agenda. Even though diversity management
scholarship has grown tremendously over the past years, a strong consensus
has emerged on existing theories tendency to focus on a single level of
analysis, on a limited range of usually Western research settings, and
despite the agenda around intersectionality, on a relatively narrow range
of types of diversity. Diversity research has insofar focused on
prioritizing visible forms of diversity, such as gender diversity or
disability, with less emphasis placed on diversity in culture and values
and across countries.

The need for this volume has emerged due to the lack of understanding as to
how diversity and equality are managed in different national contexts.
Focusing on workplace equality, diversity, and inclusion, the collection of
chapters (conceptual, theoretical, or empirical articles) will bring
together a unique blend of scholarly research and professional practice,
evidenced through an array of individuals both outside and inside

This edited book (part of the Emerald Publishing’
<>*Advanced Series in Management *
<>book series*)* seeks to provide
new practical and strategic insights for practitioners, managers, students
and policy makers; it delves on the strategic nature of policy intervention
with thought-provoking contributions written by experts from around the
world. Contributors aim to provide critical reflection of current debate
areas on diversity and equality in under-researched countries to inform and
support evidence-based decision making for a wide variety of academic and
practice-oriented stakeholders. It will benefit higher-education students’
learning experience and provide useful resources to enrich knowledge and
learning on diversity and equality in business programs, organizations, and
for policy-makers.
