OBHR 4338 Managing Diversity in Organizations (3 semester credit hours) This course focuses on the social processes experienced by persons in the workplace as they interact with and work with persons who are different from themselves. The phenomenon of difference can be a source of both destructive and productive outcomes in the work setting. The course will explore the dynamics of difference from the perspective of surface level diversity dimensions (e.g., race, sex, age, ethnicity) as well as deep-level diversity dimensions (e.g., function, religion, sexual orientation, education).
