Using a combination of qualitative and quantitative methodologies, this research addresses how employees' beliefs about diversity form and operate in teams. The impact of behaviours such as mindfulness, mutual perspective-taking, and inclusive leadership on the development of a team diversity climate are a key focus. How this team climate engages with diversity in the day-to-day practice of work to bring new insights and knowledge to accomplish work objectives is also examined. Together, the studies contribute to theory regarding diversity and team effectiveness and provide recommendations for practice, particularly with respect to multinational organisations to improve their utilisation of diverse workforces.
