Zusammenfassung

Dieses Buchkapitel vermittelt einen Überblick über die aktuellen wissenschaftlichen Befunde zur Wirksamkeit von Diversity Trainings. Es zeigt auf, dass diese Trainings - trotz ihrer sehr unterschiedlichen Ausgestaltung in der Praxis - im Prinzip wirksam sind. Das heisst, Diversity Trainings können Wissen und Fähigkeiten über den Inhalt und das Ziel von Diversity Strategien effizient vermitteln, Einstellungen gegenüber Diversity verbessern sowie auch positive Verhaltensänderungen im Umgang mit Personen aus diversen sozialen Gruppen herbeiführen. Dieses Buchkapitel zeigt aber auch auf, dass die Wirksamkeit von Diversity Trainings stark von einer Reihe weiterer Faktoren abhängt (z.B. Fokus des Trainings oder Teilnahmebedingungen) sowie auch paradoxe und unerwünschte „Nebenwirkungen“ haben können. Werden solche Aspekte berücksichtigt, sind Diversity Trainings eine sinnvolle und wirksame Massnahme zur Umsetzung einer übergreifenden Diversity Management Strategie.
