MPHR 699 - Theories of Diversity & Inclsn
The study and practice of diversity and inclusion are based on the social and normative construction of differences. This course provides a solid analysis of foundational and current diversity theory and practice, the social construction of differences, the theoretical underpinnings of diversity and oppression theory/practice in a U.S., and world historical context. It also provides a framework for the differentiation of diversity and inclusion theories, respectively. 

Practitioner values, ethics, agency and competencies are closely examined throughout the course. In this way, the course provides an in-depth and solid theoretical grounding for HR professionals, and others with responsibility for diversity and inclusion initiatives within organizations. 

To broaden individual competencies, students become familiar with the “big eight” facets of diversity in the U.S. through experiential learning at all levels of system, including the intra- and interpersonal levels, group, system and societal. In this way, students learn to identify which level of system is most open to being leveraged in support of diversity and inclusion initiatives.
