4 Myth Busting Myth 1: Our differences don’t matter; we should focus on how we are alike. Our Differences Matter: They Make a Difference The way we interpret specific events/data is determined by our past experience and cultural narrative Myth 2: Only bad people are biased. Bias is hardwired in our brains…it enables us to make choices efficiently We are often unconscious (unaware) of our biases…we accept them as truth and behave accordingly Intent vs Impact 4

15 Questions? Thank you! Carl Baldwin

16 Diversity climate, or inclusion, is defined differently by different researchers, but a generally accepted definition can be summarized as: “ perceptions that an employer utilizes fair personnel practices and integrates the attributes of the workforce into the work environment so all employees can reach their full potential while working toward mission effectiveness. This is accomplished at all levels of the organization through valuing diversity and implementing policies that demonstrate a commitment to diversity management.” (Cox, 1993; Parks, 2008,) 16 Research Point

17 Current research is inconclusive about the impact of diversity on team performance. –Managed, diversity can be a source of creativity and higher performance –Unmanaged, diversity can be a source conflict, misunderstanding, and litigation SEE: Ely, 2004; Van der Vegt & Bunderson, 2005; Jehn, Northcraft & Neale, 1999; Horowitz & Horowitz, 2007; Kirkman & Shapiro, 2005; Wetzer, Van Hemert, 2008; Joshe & Roh, Research Point

18 The relationship between diversity and performance is contingent on how diversity is managed -the importance of effectively managing the diversity climate in order to reap the benefits is of significant importance. SEE: Avery & McKay, 2010 ; Aghazdah, 2004; Basset -Jones, 2005; Cox, 1993; Griggs, 1995; Harrison & Klein, 2007; Jayne, 2004; Thomas & Ely 1996; Van Knippenberg, 2004; Van Knippenberg & Schippers, 2007; Ely, 2004; Van der Vegt & Bunderson, 2005; 18 Research Point
