  • Indigenous perspectives on work-life enrichment and conflict in Canada
    • Abstract: Equality, Diversity and Inclusion: An International Journal, Volume 36, Issue 2, March 2017.
      Purpose The article examines Indigenous perspectives of work-life enrichment and conflict and provides insights to better support Indigenous employees. Design/methodology/approach Interviews were conducted with 56 Indigenous people from six Canadian provinces. Thirty three of the respondents were female and 23 were male. The interview responses were transcribed and entered in NVivo10. Thematic analysis was used. Findings Our respondents struggled with feeling marginalized and felt frustrated that they could not engage in their cultural and family practices. Our respondents spoke of putting family needs ahead of work and that many respondents paid a price for doing so. Research limitations/implications Our results are not generalizable to all Indigenous peoples however these results do fill a void in the literature. Practical implications Employers must consider revising policies including providing more supervisor support in the form of educating supervisors on various Indigenous cultural practices and examine ways of providing more flexibility with respect to cultural and family practices. Originality/value Very few studies have examined Indigenous perspectives on work-life enrichment and conflict using a qualitative research design. It also aligns with one of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s calls to action.

  • Self help groups: a seed for intrinsic empowerment of Indian rural women
    • Abstract: Equality, Diversity and Inclusion: An International Journal, Volume 36, Issue 2, March 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of the study is to examine the role of Self Help Groups(SHG) in providing an environment for the empowerment of Indian rural women. The authors argue that the SHG empowerment strategy paves the way for the process of development of bottom-up empowerment of women. We argue that SHG is a systematic strategy and is not solely based on credit, but also incorporates many other dimensions necessarily required for developing empowerment process. Design/methodology/approach A qualitative study was the choice of design due to the inherent inability of the structured surveys to understand women empowerment (Mayoux 1998) as this study was basically interested in the women’s perception of their own empowerment.To explore their experience, a series of semi- structured interviews and focus group discussions were conducted. Findings We stand by the application of SHG empowerment strategy in India and go against the rhetoric statements that “top to bottom” approach does not lead to a significant bottom-up empowerment. Originality/value The survey was conducted by the authors in the vicinity of rural Jaipur, Rajasthan, India. Moreover, during the survey, it was found out that participation in SHG facilitates women to know that current state of dis- empowerment and provides them strength, capacity to come out from the status of drudgery, poverty and seclusion.

  • Making sense from the in-between state: immigrants’ identity work and
           the micro-processes of resistance
    • Abstract: Equality, Diversity and Inclusion: An International Journal, Volume 36, Issue 2, March 2017.
      Purpose This paper sets out to understand how immigrants to Canada (specifically Hong Kong immigrants) deal with competing senses of their situation in deciding how or whether to adjust to their new environment. In particular, we focus on the `in-between-state’ of mind where individuals try to manage competing senses of their experiences in Canada. Design/methodology/approach We draw on Critical Sensemaking (CSM) in the study of the micro-processes of identity work at play among a group of 19 Hong Kong Chinese skilled immigrants to Canada. Findings The study’s findings indicate that immigrant experiences are often filtered through the competing sensemaking of the immigrants themselves and those of the so-called `host’ community. As our study of Hong Kong immigrants suggests, this can lead to confused and compromised experiences of being an immigrant in the Canadian context. Research limitations/implications The study was confined to immigrants to Canada from Hong Kong. Further study of different immigrant groups may throw light on the extent to which competing sensemaking is related to cultural differences that affect not only the distance in understanding but the management of that distance. Practical implications The paper contributes to the diversity management literature and practice through understanding immigrants’ identity construction and its oscillations, influences, and restrictions as agency in context. Originality/value The study reveals the importance of sensemaking in the experiences of immigrants to Canada. In particular, it broadens knowledge of the problems of adjusting to a new (national) environment from structural constraints to micro-processes of making sense. In the process, the study of the management of competing senses of an environment contributes to the development of critical sensemaking with the focus on, what we call, the state of in-betweeness.

  • Board diversity and self-regulation in Dutch pension funds
    • Abstract: Equality, Diversity and Inclusion: An International Journal, Volume 36, Issue 2, March 2017.
      Purpose To examine the change in pension fund board diversity after self-regulation was introduced, and investigate which pension fund characteristics influence compliance with self-regulation. In addition, we analyze whether compliance might be achieved by tokenism. Design/methodology/approach We hand-collect pension fund and pension fund board data of the largest (by assets) 200 pension funds in the Netherlands. We compare descriptive statistics on board diversity, perform statistical tests on these, and perform non-linear regression techniques to investigate which pension fund characteristics influence compliance. Findings Our findings are fourfold. First, over the past three years, pension fund boards have only marginally improved on gender and age diversity. In April 2014, still more than 35 per cent of the funds had no women on the board, and an overwhelming 60 per cent had no members below 40 years of age. This indicates that self-regulation in the pension fund industry so far has not been effective for the industry as a whole. Second, we find that pension funds that have larger boards are more likely to have at least one woman on the board or at least one member below 40 years of age. Third, boards of pension funds with more assets are less likely to have young board members. Fourth, boards with at least one female have a higher probability of also having at least one member below 40 years, which is suggestive of tokenism. Research limitations/implications Based on Hirschman's (1970) theory of voice and exit, we expect that pension fund boards would be more diverse than corporate boards. However, we find that this is not the case. Second, given the importance of generational value transfers in pension fund policy decisions, we expect that age is a more important diversity characteristic than gender for pension fund boards in the Netherlands. Again, the data does not support this prediction. Practical implications Consistent with the literature on diversity in corporate boards, we find that diverse boards are on average larger. This suggests that, all other things equal, small boards might want to reconsider whether increasing their size would lead to more diversity and hence to more voice for participants that cannot exit the pension scheme. If larger funds hesitate to include young members because of their lack of relevant skills, then we would recommend setting up a platform to educate young candidates and prepare them for board membership. Forced independent auditor verification, as in the UK, might be a fruitful action the regulator could enforce on pension funds going forward. However, if that also does not lead to a significant improvement, compulsory diversity quota might be the only option left for policy makers. Originality/value This paper contributes to the literature in at least three ways. First, we analyze whether self-regulation on diversity in pension fund boards has been effective. Second, we determine which pension fund characteristics are associated with more board diversity. Third, we shed light on tokenism in pension fund board composition: Diversity might be obtained through installing diversity tokens, which are individuals who have multiple diversity characteristics.

  • Financial self-efficacy: a mediator in advancing financial inclusion
    • Abstract: Equality, Diversity and Inclusion: An International Journal, Volume 36, Issue 2, March 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper was to examine the mediating effect of financial self-efficacy on the relationship between financial attitude, financial literacy and financial inclusion among individuals in Uganda. Design/methodology/approach Using a quantitative approach and cross sectional research design, a sample of 400 individuals from urban Central and rural Northern Uganda was drawn. Using SPSS and AMOS™ 21, structural equation models and bootstrapping methods were used to establish the hypothesized relationships and mediation effects between financial attitude, financial literacy and financial inclusion. Findings The results suggested financial self-efficacy as a mediator of the relationship between financial attitude, financial literacy and financial inclusion. Further, there was a significant and insignificant relationship between financial literacy, financial attitude and financial inclusion respectively. Research limitations/implications The study was assessed using both potential and actual consumers of financial services collectively. However if separately assessed, possibly there would be a variation in perceptions or behavioral responses towards financial inclusion. Practical implications There is a need to develop and sustain high levels of financial confidence among individuals to enable them use formal financial services. Originality/value The results contribute towards the limited empirical and theoretical evidence regarding the mediating role of financial self-efficacy in explaining financial behaviour.

  • Initiatives that diminish the biases of recruiters against people who
           disclose or demonstrate a diagnosed mental disorder
    • First page: 2
      Abstract: Equality, Diversity and Inclusion: An International Journal, Volume 36, Issue 1, February 2017.
      Purpose This paper explores the possibility that several workplace initiatives could stem the biases of recruiters against people who disclose or demonstrate diagnosed mental disorders. Specifically, in many nations, the level of unemployment in people who experience mental disorders is rife. Arguably, employers exhibit various biases that disadvantage people who disclose or demonstrate mental disorders; for example, recruiters tend to orient attention to the limitations, instead of the strengths, of job candidates. Because of these various biases, employers may reject applicants who acknowledge or manifest a mental disorder, even if these candidates would have been suitable. Design/methodology/approach To substantiate these premises, we analyzed established taxonomies of cognitive biases to identify which of these biases are likely to deter the employment of people with mental disorders. In addition, we applied several theories, such as the future-self continuity hypothesis, to uncover a variety of initiatives that could redress these biases in the future. Findings We uncovered five constellations of biases in recruiters that could disadvantage individuals who disclose or demonstrate mental disorders. Fortunately, consistent with the meaning maintenance model and cognate theories, when the vision and strategy of organizations is stable and enduring, these biases diminish, and people who report mental disorders are more likely to be employed. Originality/value This paper shows that initiatives that promote equality and stability in organizations could diminish stigma against individuals who experience mental disorders.

  • Worker outcomes of LGBT-supportive policies: a cross-level model
    • First page: 17
      Abstract: Equality, Diversity and Inclusion: An International Journal, Volume 36, Issue 1, February 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of the current article is to develop a cross-level conceptual model of organizational- and individual-level outcomes of LGBT-supportive policies for all workers regardless of their sexual orientation. Design/methodology/approach This is a conceptual paper based on an integration of propositions from perceived organizational support and organizational justice theories. Findings Our model suggests that LGBT-supportive policies should be related to perceptions of organizational support directly, and indirectly through diversity climate and perceptions of distributive, procedural and interactional justice. Practical implications Our model implies that employees should feel more supported and more fairly treated among firms with LGBT-supportive policies and practices, and that these feelings will be reciprocated. Originality/value This is the first article to develop propositions about the outcomes of LGBT-supportive policies for all workers, and advances the literature by developing a multilevel model of outcomes of these policies.

  • Generational perceptions at work: in-group favoritism and out-group
           stereotypes
    • First page: 33
      Abstract: Equality, Diversity and Inclusion: An International Journal, Volume 36, Issue 1, February 2017.
      Purpose Examined the relationship between stereotypes, in-group favoritism and in-group bolstering effects across generations. Design/methodology/approach Based on the trends found in a qualitative study on generational stereotypes, questions on work ethic, work-life balance and use of technology were administered to 255 participants identified as Millennials, Generation X, and Baby Boomers. Hypotheses predicted that with a strong stereotype, traditional in-group favoritism will not be found; however, an in-group bolstering effect will emerge. In the absence of a strong stereotype, traditional in-group favoritism is expected. Findings Generally, there was a strong stereotype that Baby Boomers are worse at technology than Generation X and Generation X is worse than Millennials. There was also a strong stereotype that Millennials do not do what it takes to get the job done as much as other generations. In the presence of these stereotypes, traditional in-group favoritism was not found, but in-groups bolstered themselves by rating themselves more favorably than other groups rated them. Although these findings did not hold for every item studied, there was moderate support for all three hypotheses. Practical implications As employees become aware of their biases, they can collaborate better with employees who are different than they are. Practical recommendations are suggested. Originality/value Applies theory of in-group favoritism to the perceptions of generational cohorts.

  • Diverse approaches to negative treatment in the workplace: sector
           differences and their effects
    • First page: 54
      Abstract: Equality, Diversity and Inclusion: An International Journal, Volume 36, Issue 1, February 2017.
      Purpose This purpose of this article is to examine whether and how different diversity approaches of public, semi-public and private sector organizations affect negative treatment experienced in the workplace. Broadly speaking, organizations might either approach diversity as a problem of inequality or as a resource and an added value for the organization. As such, a pro-equality and a pro-diversity approach can be distinguished which are both examined in this article. Design/methodology/approach In a quantitative study structural equation modelling was used on survey data of a representative sample of Dutch employees. Findings Results show that while both approaches are negatively associated with negative treatment, the pro-diversity is most strongly so. Sector differences were less pronounced than expected, although employees across different sectors of employment benefit from both approaches to a different extent. Research limitations/implications Further research examining the effect of diversity approaches to negative treatment across sectors is required. Suggestions for further research are discussed. Practical implications Looking at sector differences, the findings showed that employees across public, semi-public and private sector organizations benefitted from the diversity approaches to a different extent. Organizations across different sectors are therefore suggested to adopt different diversity approaches to combat negative treatment in the workplace. Originality/value Most studies either focus on a pro-equality or pro-diversity approach. The present study combines both and, moreover, pays attention to the way both approaches affect negative treatment experienced in the semi-public sector. Examining variation within the public sector is unique in the context of diversity research.

  • The relationship between perceived pay equity, productivity, and
           organizational commitment for U.S. professionals of color
    • First page: 73
      Abstract: Equality, Diversity and Inclusion: An International Journal, Volume 36, Issue 1, February 2017.
      Purpose The purposes of this study were to examine: the direct effect of perceived pay equity, the interaction of perceived pay equity and productivity, and the relative effects of perceived internal and external pay equity on organizational commitment among U. S. scholars of color. Design/methodology/approach The study surveyed 160 professionals. Correlation and hierarchical regression were employed to test the hypotheses. Findings Perceived pay equity directly influenced organizational commitment and interacted with scholarly productivity to affect commitment. Highly productive participants who perceived pay equity reported the highest commitment. When pay was seen as inequitable, the most productive scholars reported the lowest commitment. Perceived internal pay equity had an effect, over and above perceived external pay equity on commitment. Research limitations/implications The study was conducted in one industry in the USA, so the results should be generalized cautiously. While the data were single-source and cross-sectional, the findings were consistent with previous research. Practical implications Findings may be useful for minority scholars’ supervisors since they have knowledge of the productivity and salaries in the department and can provide a detailed explanation for pay differences to enhance pay equity perceptions, particularly for the most productive scholars. Originality/value This study adds to the equity and relative deprivation theory research investigating the effect of perceived pay equity on employee outcomes by examining perceived internal and external pay equity perceptions and productivity on organizational commitment. Results suggest that highly productive minority professionals in higher education are particularly sensitive to pay equity.

  • Engaging diversity in academia: manifold voices of faculty
    • First page: 90
      Abstract: Equality, Diversity and Inclusion: An International Journal, Volume 36, Issue 1, February 2017.
      Purpose This article examines the perspectives of academic staff on issues of diversity and social schisms: capturing their perceptions of the complex relations at an academic campus positioned in an intricate sociopolitical context. It also explored how the faculty’s construal of diversity and social divisions inform their educational practices. Design/methodology/approach The study employed a qualitative approach using grounded theory methodology. Data collection was based on semi-structured in-depth interviews with twenty diverse faculty members from different departments in a northern Israeli college. The interviews were transcribed and processed into main themes and categories. Findings The findings revealed two main themes: “Diversity awareness” depicting recognition and sensitivity to the complex social context in the college, strategies of directly engaging with it, downplaying or overlooking the intricacies, and “Practices” describing the practical translations of the educational credos into teaching practice. Both themes reflected a myriad of faculty voices. Originality/value Empirical evidence of the organizational actors’ predicaments, their diverse patterns of coping with intricacies, and the factors underlying their choices contribute to the body of knowledge on managing diversity in vivo by real women and men with different backgrounds and experiences.
