How Experiences with Diversity and Mindfulness Contribute To Inclusive Diversity Climates at Work

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

Research examining the topic of inclusion and diversity across demographic differences, underlying attributes and cultural values highlights the importance of inclusive interpersonal processes. Addressing the 2019 conference theme by delineating pathways to inclusion in organizations, in this symposium, we include four empirical papers that explore (1) how experiences with diversity at the workplace and individual mindfulness impact inclusive diversity climates in the workplace, (2) how an individual’s level of cross-cultural competence can influence their perceptions of team inclusion, (3) how simulation-based training can enhance communication in diverse teams to arrive at greater inclusiveness and stronger team identity, (4) and finally how an individual's mental representations of team diversity can influence the relationship between individual gender dissimilarity and an individual's inclusion in team information elaboration. Following the presentations, Professor Darren Good, a leading scholar on mindfulness and team adaptation and a highly skilled facilitator, will serve as a discussant to synthesize the theoretical and practical implications of the papers, for inclusion and diversity research.
