MG-510 • Managing Workforce Diversity
Center Valley, Wednesdays

Managing diversity is becoming increasingly important to contemporary organizations and is likely to become even more critical in the future as the population and workforce become even more heterogeneous. Human diversity is both a moral imperative and a potential source of competitive advantage. This course is designed to help students become aware of the multiple dimensions of diversity such as race, class, gender, physical ability, sexual orientation, age, and nationality. In addition, differences in function, perspective, and work style will be explored to examine their potential impact in the workplace. The course provides information and experience to help make students more proficient in dealing with an increasingly diverse workforce.

Students are expected to be open to learning new information about demographic groups other than their own. Students' beliefs are their own and it is not the purpose of this class to try to change them. However, students will be encouraged to share them often and think about how they arrived at such beliefs. Many previously unchallenged assumptions will be challenged in this course. There may be disagreements and displays of emotion. That is all normal when learning about topics so central to how we identify and think about ourselves.

Key issues associated with the design and management supply chains, modern roles of sourcing, logistics, operation, and sales, and establishing intra- and inter-firm cooperation and strategic alliances across complex, global supply chains will be introduced and discussed.
