Discrimination, harassment, and the failure of diversity training : what to do now

Author: Hellen Hemphill; Ray Haines
Publisher: Westport, Conn. : Quorum Books, 1997.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Diversity training failed because of its focus on the awareness, understanding and appreciation of differences rather than teaching basic skills to help employees relate more effectively with each other regardless of their differences. Companies have the right to require professional behavior from their employees. They do not have the right to ask their employees to change their personal values and belief systems.
