LOS 316 - Diversity in Organizations


Students in this course will develop an understanding of the benefits and challenges of diversity in organizations. The course  takes a historical, socio-economic, and psychological approach to the challenges of diverse and marginalized populations in the U.S. Students learn how the workplace may affect diverse peoples and how others can learn to make the workplace more hospitable. A primary focus of this course is on examining beliefs, behaviors, or unconscious attitudes that perpetuate the oppression and subordination of diverse members of society in the workplace, while also looking at how increased diversity is adding to workplace productivity, creativity, and learning. Readings are drawn from the social sciences and humanities to provide an interdisciplinary approach to the topic.
