Abstract and Keywords

In this chapter, focus is shifted from broad conceptualizations of diversity to the perspective that some differences are imbued with social value. Drawing from a rich tradition of stigma theory and research, we explore the intra- and interpersonal experiences of targets of stigma and their interaction partners. We review general theories about stigmatization, the nature of stigmatized attributes, manifestations of stigma, and consequences of stigma for individuals and their organizations. This synthesis guides important avenues for future research.

Keywords: stigma, dual perspectives
