Special Issue on Global Diversity Management 
International Journal of Human Resource Management

There has been an explosion of research on diversity in organizations in the last 2 decades. However, the vast majority of research in the area of diversity has been conducted by U.S. researchers utilizing U.S. samples with a focus on domestic diversity issues. Although this research has been impressive, because of its domestic focus, it fails to address the issues that are of concern to organizations in the face of rapidly increasing globalization. This special issue will seek contributions that address the following questions, among others, regarding global diversity management:

1. Are there differences in the group membership characteristics along which discrimination is a concern across cultures? 
2. Is it possible to meaningfully discuss individual and group experiences of discrimination across countries despite cross-cultural differences in the meanings attached to and acceptability of certain behaviors? 
3. How do legal protections against discrimination differ across cultures? 
4. What are the major cross-cultural differences in the way that diversity and inclusion are managed? 
5. To what extent do existing models of diversity management contain western cultural biases that would make them inappropriate for implementation in other cultural contexts?
6. What is the extent to which existing models of diversity management (which have been developed to manage domestic diversity) are appropriate for managing multicultural diversity in a global context? What unique factors need to be considered within the multicultural context?
7. How do multinational organizations negotiate localization and globalization of their diversity management practices?
8. What are the processes and practices involved with global inclusion at the individual, group, and organizational levels of analysis?

Guest Editors:
Lisa Nishii (Cornell University, Industrial and Labor Relations)
Mustafa Ozbilgin (Queen Mary, University of London)

Submission Deadline: November 1, 2005.

European Journal of Work and Organizational Psychology Special Issue: 

Psychological and Organizational Climate Research From 
Different Cultural Perspectives

Differences in culture (e.g., focusing on individuals vs. collectives) and research traditions have cultivated different ways of looking at work climate. For instance, the quantitative Anglo-American approach tends to focus on the measurement of specific climate dimensions at the individual level of analysis (i.e., psychological climate), and the data aggregation for studying climate at the organizational level of analysis. This focus is in contrast to climate research in some European countries, which is characterized as a more phenomenologically oriented approach to global assessments of climate at the organization level of analysis. Cultural differences impact not only the content and nature of climate measures but also may influence the types of criteria that are focused on in relation to what workers value versus what work organizations value. 

The purpose of this special issue is to publish original research on work climate from different cultural perspectives and research traditions. The selected articles will illustrate how climate research within different countries and cultures is both different and complementary, and offer progress toward advancing research and practice on work climate. Contributions dealing with all aspects of research on work climate will be considered. 

The special issue will be guest edited by Alessia DAmato (University of Surrey) and Michael Burke (Tulane University). Questions concerning possible submissions from countries within the European Union can be directed to Alessia DAmato (a.damato@surrey.ac.uk) and from outside the European Union to Michael Burke (mburke1@tulane.edu).

Manuscripts should be prepared following the guidelines in the APA Publication Manual (5th ed.). Please e-mail your manuscript in a standard document format such as Word, Rich Text Format, or PDF to reviews@psypress.co.uk

All submissions will be peer reviewed.

Manuscripts are to be submitted by October 31, 2005.

News from the American Board of Organizational and Business 
Consulting Psychology (ABOBCP, a specialty board of the American Board of Professional Psychology)

There have been several changes in the American Board of Organizational and Business Consulting Psychology (ABOBCP) over the past year. The Board, formerly known as the American Board of Industrial and Organizational Psychology, has been rerecognized as a specialty area by the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP). This recognition resulted from the extensive efforts of Bill Amberg, past president, in revitalizing the board and increasing the number of diplomates. Other changes include the election of a new president, Jay Thomas (Pacific University), and three new board members: Dennis Doverspike (University of Akron), Judith Blanton (RHR International), and Steve Marshall (Marshall Leadership Consulting). The board recognizes advanced levels of expertise in I-O and consulting psychologists. Applications are invited for both regular track (5 years post-doctoral experience) and senior track (15 years postdoctoral experience) candidates. More information is available at ABPP.org.



Update...Health Care for the Whole Person (HCWP), one of APA president Ron Levants exciting presidential initiatives, is growing by leaps and bounds. Chaired by Margaret Heldring PhD, HCWP is about mending the mindbody gap and improving the quality of health care in our nation. Levant and Heldring are building a strong partnership of health, consumer, and public health groups to endorse a vision of health care that integrates mental and behavioral health services. Eight committees, each chaired by a psychologist, include nearly 100 psychologists, family physicians, pediatricians, economists, nurses, social workers, emergency medicine physicians, internists, and public health experts working together to assemble the evidence and rationale for integrated care. Committees span science to practice to policy. Each will produce a report addressing issues such as clinical examples, culture and disparities, the economics of integration, and rural health issues.

As of April 22, 2005, the following organizations have signed on as partners:

The American Public Health Association
The American College of Nurse Practitioners
Association of Academic Health Centers
Center for the Advancement of Health
Society for Behavioral Medicine
Families USA
Collaborative Family Health Care Association
National Association of County and City Health Officials
Consumers Union
The American Nurses Association

We are working with a number of other health professions professional associations to encourage their participation as well. Several other organizations are close to confirming, so watch for updates.

Drs. Levant and Heldring and the task force members are excited to see HCWP shape up as a powerful providerconsumer voice on behalf of improved health care and health for all Americans. We look forward to providing you with ongoing updates as this important work continues.
