Managing Equality and Diversity: Theory and Practice offers a unique learning experience and an innovative approach to an increasingly important subject area, and offers students a solid foundation in equality and diversity management, while fostering a strong understanding of its practicalapplication in business. Taking a business, rather than sociological approach to the subject, the text supplements the theory behind managing equality and diversity with real-world practical examples, providing an insight into the contemporary issues facing today's businesses and organisations. This up-to-date coverage iscombined with an accessible and student-friendly writing style, which ensures an engaging discussion of key themes and concepts relevant to equality management. Structured in two parts, the authors begin by grounding students in the theory of diversity management and outlining UK and European equality legislation. The second half of the text is then devoted to connecting this theory with the practice of managing gender, ethnicity, disability and sexualorientation in the workplace. Rich in case studies from the public and private sector, this textbook provides students with a comprehensive insight into real-life management situations. The text is supported by an extensive Online Resource Centre for both students and registered lecturers. Closely linked to the textbook, the resource centre consolidates student learning and offers a breadth of teaching resources for equality and diversity modules. Students will find up-to-datelinks to journal articles and policy updates, while lecturers can access discussion and debate questions to use as a platform for seminar discussion.
