Experiential activities help students understand workplace diversityThis book shows readers how to create an inclusive work environment and culture that can value and leverage the contributions of all members, regardless of personal characteristics that are not pertinent to the job. To achieve this, the book provides a comprehensive set of learning activities that address issues related to workplace diversity.  Drawing on a variety of work settings, including both business and not-for-profit organizations, Managing a Diverse Workforce, Third Edition will be an invaluable asset for human resource development courses in departments of management, public administration, and human services. It is a perfect companion to core texts on workforce diversity, including Gary Powell's Women and Men in Management, Fourth Edition (SAGE).

Who Gets Hired?

Who gets hired?
  • To examine the criteria used by review panels to make decisions about candidates for a managerial position.
  • To examine the dynamics of conducting interviews and making hiring decisions that occur in review panels.
  • To examine how treatment and outcome discrimination may be manifested by review panels in the interview process.
Preparation:Read background sheet
Time:60 to 75 minutes


The introduction to the previous learning activity, Consulting Analyst Wanted, applies to this one as well, except that review panels conduct interviews of two candidates playing specific roles. As a result, we see whether interviews conducted by a review panel rather than a single individual result in treatment discrimination (how interviews are conducted) or outcome discrimination (who gets hired and at what salary).
