Much of the recent attention devoted to diversity in the workplace has focused on such management issues as overcoming cultural barriers, avoiding stereotypes, and eliminating discrimination. But works such as John Fernandez'sThe Diversity Advantage(1993) andWorkforce America!(1991), coauthored by Rosener and Marilyn Loden, stress that a diverse workforce is actually an important asset that places the U.S. at an advantage over countries with a more homogeneous workforce. Rosener, a management professor at the University of California, Irvine, and author of the widely praised 1990Harvard Business Reviewarticle "Ways Women Lead," echoes that same line but this time focuses on women managers.
