Technology as a Tool for Diversity Leadership

Book Description

Although diversity and leadership are not new concepts, the changing of populations, advances in technology, and development of theoretical perspectives have led to the emergence of diversity leadership as an important field of study. As technology continues to bring people together, it aids in the organizational approach of embracing uniqueness and finding innovative ways to reach higher levels of performance. Technology as a Tool for Diversity Leadership: Implementation and Future Implications focuses on the technological connections between diversity leadership and the focus on inclusivity, evolvement, and communication to meet the needs of multicultural environments. This book highlights societal implications in real-world problems and performance improvement in organizations.
