Globale Unternehmen wollen die kulturelle Heterogenität ihrer Mitarbeiter als personalpolitische Ressource nutzen. Das internationale Management, das lange Zeit mit der Vorstellung einer kulturell homogenen Belegschaft gelebt hat, machte Diversity zum Bestandteil der offiziellen Konzernpolitik. Diversity Management - so der Fachausdruck - erhebt den Anspruch, die individuelle Verschiedenheit der Mitarbeiterinnen und Mitarbeiter im Sinne einer positiven Wertschätzung wahrzunehmen und Chancengleichheit zu ermöglichen. So viel zum Anspruch von Diversity Management. Doch wie sieht die Realität von Diversity-Programmen in globalen Unternehmen aus? Die Studie von Anja Frohnen geht dieser Frage in einer ethnographisch dichten Beschreibung nach. Die alltägliche multinationale Praxis von Managern und Ingenieuren wird im Spannungsfeld einer forcierten Globalisierungsstrategie und Diversity-Programmen gezeigt. Auf innovative Weise überträgt die Autorin dazu das ethnomethodologische Doing-Gender-Konzept auf ein Doing-Nationality-Modell und analysiert mit einer systemtheoretischen Konzeption von Organisation die organisationalen Aspekte der Diversity-Praxis und Globalisierungsstrategie.

Sports is a singular field, in that if someone has the skills it takes to play the game, at whatever level, it doesn't matter whether they are rich or poor, or what their background or culture is. And of course anyone can come together to enjoy a good game. Despite this inclusivity, the field of sports definitely has its weak points. Readers will gain new perspectives after reading about vital issues including stereotypes in various sports, the pros and cons of segregated versus inclusive sports, and the issues surrounding integrated sports.

The emphasis in this book shifts to the coordination of practice into schools, regional and national policies and the power and interest groups concerned with educational difficulties and disability. In the opening section the authors review the location of power in the systems; the impact of Local Management of Schools, case studies of Union policy, the National Curriculum Council and voluntary societies. They then look at one threatened element of the power structure - the local education authorities. They examine the features of local authority policy and attempt to systematise local policy. The experience of families is examined in their relationships with professionals, particularly during the preparation of Statements of Special Educational Need. This is followed by sections on services for under-fives, integrating education and the authors provide examples of changing school policies and the practices that have arisen from them; supporting the learning of all pupils in primary and secondary schools, changing the role of special schools, ensuring that girls and boys are provided with equal opportunities, writing a development plan and the experience of a teacher with a disability. They then examine policies and practices in education after school and finish with theories of integration and disability.
