Abstract and Keywords

Understanding the complex and multi-faceted connections between organizational diversity and CSR requires that we go beyond simply noting the percentages of women and minorities employed by an organization or serving on a board of directors. We need to understand the likely effects of diversity at different levels of the organization (e.g., top management versus lower-level management and non-managerial workers). We also need to better understand the potentially different effects of the various types of diversity (race, gender, age, and less visible forms of diversity like educational or functional background). The main focus of this chapter will be on exploring how and why the presence of various types of diversity on a TMT or board of directors might affect the actions the organization is likely to take with respect to goals and initiatives in the area of CSR, especially ones that involve enhancing opportunities for women and minorities.

Keywords: diversity, corporate social responsibility, opportunities, women, minorities, top management teams
