Abstract and Keywords

Laws now exist to protect employees from blatant forms of discrimination in hiring and promotion, but workplace discrimination persists in latent forms. These “second-generation” forms of bias arise in workplace structures, practices, and patterns of interaction that inadvertently favor some groups over others. This chapter reviews research on how these biases manifest themselves in the core processes of organizations—that is, how people are hired, compensated, developed, and evaluated—all of which are aspects of organizational life that tend to privilege some groups over others. It also reviews research that points to remedies for these biases, illustrating that organizational practices can be sites for intervention and change. The chapter concludes with methodological and substantive recommendations for future research on discrimination and its remedies in organizations.

Keywords: discrimination, bias, race, gender, organization, discrimination, remedy, intervention
