Delegates from all over the world who attended the Eighteenth International Conference on Diversity in Organizations, Communities & Nations
Individuals ascribe meanings to their personae, or meanings are ascribed to them by others through processes of social categorization. Sometimes these processes produce the effect of exclusion, either on a person-to-person affective basis, or through systemic or structural exclusion—hence classifications such as racism, sexism, homophobia, ableism, and classism. At other times, inclusive remedies are prescribed to injustices of difference, including equity, access, multiculturalism, tolerance, and recognition, for instance. “Affinity in Diversity” raises a strategic question: how, in our current social conditions, do we address demands to reconsider the boundaries of individual and social categorization?
