Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to contribute to the elaboration of a comprehensive moral framework for designing and implementing diversity practices. In so doing, it employs distinct ethical theories that not only elevate respect for differences to an end, but also provide a set of principles, virtues or values conducive to the formation of an inclusive work environment.
Design/methodology/approach: A literature review, in particular contributions critical to current implementations of diversity management, may provide the basis of a non instrumental approach to diversity issues, allowing for an inclusive and participative workplace. The paper suggests that such an endeavor can be founded on the concepts of organizational virtue, care or human dignity alternatively. In this respect, a theoretical context demonstrating the very way these concepts influence and inform diversity issues, is elaborated, analyzed and properly discussed.
Findings: Three distinct theoretical frameworks capturing the importance of major ethical traditions based on dignity, organizational virtue and care, for reconceptualizing diversity issues, are introduced. It is proposed that non utilitarian philosophical ethics (and more specifically, Kantian
deontology, Aristotelian virtue ethics or ethics of care) is in a position to provide a rationale for diversity policies that affirm the diverse other as a valued end.
Practical implications: The authors argue that a corporation is in a position to develop ethically informed diversity initiatives that may effectively combine performance with an affirmation of the value of the diverse other.
Social implications: The authors argue that a corporation is in a position to develop ethically informed diversity initiatives that may effectively combine performance with an affirmation of the value of the diverse other.
Originality value: The paper offers certain insights into the particular conditions that may help organizations design and implement a diversity strategy facilitating thriving and fulfillment of diverse others, grounded on the priority of dignity, virtue or care respectively. Such a perspective, permeating vision, culture and leadership, is invested with a potential that overcomes the managerial instrumentality, so strongly denounced by the majority of critical diversity scholars.
Keywords: Diversity management, Ethics of care, Inclusive workplaces, Kantian deontology, Organizational virtue
Paper type: Conceptual paper
