Ever wondered what it takes to achieve a truly diverse set of business managers? Looks like it will take white men to lead the way

This is the result of a study by David Hekman (U. Col. Boulder), Stefanie Johnson, and others, published in the Academy of Management Journal. They evaluated managers on their “diversity-valuing behavior,” including their predilection to hire women and minorities, and respecting other cultures, religions and genders. “Much to our surprise,” Hekman and Johnson wrote in the Harvard Business Review, they found two results that should be no surprize to those of us in the trenches. (1) no one gets rewarded for promoting diversity at work, regardless of race or gender. (2) women and non-white executives were judged more harshly by their bosses when they promoted “diversity-valuing” behavior at work. What a sad commentary on our business society.
