Challenge and change in the military: D2-166/2005E-PDF

gender and diversity issues /

"Diversity in the military is a complex subject, both conceptually and in terms of its more practical, managerial implications. It represents one of the most significant and difficult challenges for human resource management that military leaders have faced over the past two or three decades. Greater diversity in recruitment, development, and employment has challenged traditional military institutional norms, values, beliefs, and attitudes. Human resource philosophies, policies, programs, and practices have been adapted and revised. This volume adds to the accumulating evidence of the progress that has been made in understanding and managing diversity in the armed forces and the problems that remain unresolved. Its main focus is the full integration of women, which some analysts see as the most problematic; many nations have yet to resolve key gender-related issues"--Introduction, p. 1.
