Abstract and Keywords

This chapter examines the globalizing trajectory of the concept of diversity management from a decolonial perspective. This decolonial analysis is undertaken by a ‘local’ researcher from an emerging economy in Latin America (more specifically, Brazil) who also takes part into the US-led ‘global’ MOS academy. The basic argument is that diversity management is a controversial concept due to its attachment to Eurocentric narratives of modernity/coloniality, which have been transformed into ‘universal’ knowledge by mechanisms of knowledge management inaugurated when European conquerors discovered and conquered America over five centuries ago. The colonial side of diversity management is unveiled in order to open space for decolonial possibilities that have been negated and to the reframing of diversity management.

Keywords: decolonial, coloniality, diversity management, Eurocentrism, globalism
