We’re pleased to announce the release of an ILR Review special issue on workplace inequality — offering important theoretical and practical insights for efforts to reduce inequality in organizations. Many thanks to guest editors Pamela S. Tolbert and Emilio J. Castilla. Papers in the issue empirically examine the efficacy of a range of practices to reduce racial and gender disparities in hiring, promotion, and compensation. They also identify key contingencies that affect the relationship between organizational practices and outcomes, showing differences in effects for women and minorities, for members at different hierarchical levels, and for members drawn from internal or external labor markets.
