Equality, Inequality and Diversity, reframes equality and diversity at work through the lenses of intersectionality and change. The text highlights the usefulness of injecting a critical perspective to diversity scholarship, which often focuses on instrumental expectations of business and management leaders. Across a collection of 16 chapters from leading scholars, readers can appreciate the broad spectrum of perspectives and issues that diversity and equality work has come to embrace.' - Mustafa Ozbilgin, Professor of Organisational Behaviour and Human Resource Management, Brunel Business School, UK
'A series of compelling analyses of equality and diversity issues with a range of contemporary themes. The book will captivate and enthral scholars, students and policy-makers alike.' - Professor Emmanuel Ogbonna, Chair in Management & Organizational Behaviour Cardiff Business School, U
K'This truly excellent book is both inspiring and thought-provoking.' - Industrial Relations Journal 43:4, 373-374
