Diversity and difference research: A reflection on categories and categorization


This paper is a reflection about categories used in research on diversity and difference in organizations[1]. Diversity and difference research uses social categories (Litvin, 1997) as analytical units or tools to understand and explain issues of inequality, discrimination, diversity and inclusion in the workplace (e.g. Ahmed, 2012), and to understand the behavior of the other (Zander et al., 2010).
