Recommendations for effectiveness in diversity implementation

Often academics use university groups (young adults not yet in the work force) to look for solutions to issues that confound those of us currently in the workforce. This multiple-authored article argues: “since undergraduate students are undoubtedly future employees, we view uncovering what works for this group as a first step in discovering what might work for the broader population of working adults”.  

The academic lab certainly has its advantage–experimenting with a control group and a non-control group builds valuable comparisons.  Our team finds the points and recommendations put forth in this article worth consideration.

“Diversity training effectiveness depends on the specific training method used, the personality characteristics of those who are trained, and the specific outcomes that are measured after training concludes”. From the Harvard Business Review 2017
