backgrounds, beliefs, capabilities, and so forth; understanding and deeply valuing employee 
differences; DIVERSITY MAKES TEAMS MORE INNOVATIVE
  Affirmative action: special efforts to recruit and hire qualified of groups that have been 
discriminated against in the past  
Quid pro quo harassment: submission to reject of sexual conduct is used as a basis for 
employment decisions (you do this for me, I’ll do that for you) 
Hostile environment: occurs when unwelcome sexual conduct has the effect of unreasonably 
interfering with job performance or creating an intimidating or hostile working environment  
Sexual harassment: conduct of sexual nature that has negative consequences for employment  6 basic components of an effective sexual harassment policy:  1.  Developing a comprehensive organization-wide policy on sexual harassment and  present it to all current and new employees; stress that sexual harassment will not be 
under any circumstances  
2.  Hold training sessions with supervisors to explain Title VII requirement, their role in  providing an environment free of sexual harassment, proper investigative procedures

4.  Act immediately when employees complain of sexual harassment. Communicate widely  that investigations will be conducted objectively and with appreciation for the sensitivity 
of the issues 
5.  When an investigation supports employee charges, discipline the offender at once. For  extremely serious offences, discipline should include penalties up to and including 
discharge. Discipline should be applied consistently across similar cases

foreign-born workers made up more than 17% of the US civilian labor force. About half of these 
workers are Hispanic, and 24% are Asian; one in 66 in the US identifies himself as multiracial,

groups that differ from the majority- and thus has a highly homogenous employee population 
Pluralist org: a relatively diverse employee population and makes an effort to involve employees 
from different gender, racial, or cultural backgrounds 
Multicultural org: an organization that values cultural diversity and seeks to utilize and encourage 
it  
How org can cultivate a diverse workforce:   1.  Securing top managements leadership and commitment
