This chapter argues that, while there is some merit in 'managing diversity' policies, particularly the emphasis on building inclusive organisational cultures which value and accept a wide range of human differences, both this term and 'productive diversity' have serious practical and theoretical deficiencies. We aim to illustrate some of these deficiencies, first, by sketching a brief overview of the debates in the literature on diversity management, and second, through discussion of two organisational case studies we conducted in Australian companies in early 2000.
