brings together top scholars in industrial and organizational psychology with
social psychologists to explore the research and theory relating to various
areas of workplace discrimination. Many of the contributors to this book
participated in a conference on workplace discrimination held at Rice University
in May 2000. The idea came from the realization that there had been no attempt
to bring together the various literatures on the topic. Discrimination and
issues of employment diversity are a big topic today in IO psychology, business,
and human resource management. This edited volume examines the following
components of this important discussion: *how to explain discrimination in
organizations; *understanding discrimination against specific groups; and
*implications for practical efforts to reduce discrimination. This book brings
together, in one volume, a review of the research on discrimination based on
race, age, sexual orientation, gender, physical appearance, disability, and
personality. In addition, it explores the multilevel antecedents and potential
bases for a general model of discrimination in the workplace. While social
psychological research and theory have provided invaluable insights, an
understanding of discrimination in the workplace and solutions will require
incorporating factors at the organizational level in addition to factors at the
individual and group levels. Although a definitive model is not reached, the aim
of this text is to facilitate future research and theory.
