Dr. Nadya Fouad, Distinguished Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, discusses globalization and diversity. She argues that globalism has really opened the door to focus on differences in cultural values. Multi-national companies are now looking at how cultural values determine management styles, communication needs, decision-making, etc. Companies that are inclusive and value diversity understand that different perspectives coming from many different people are ways to strengthen their bottom line.
Nadya Fouad, University Distinguished Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, explains how the study of psychology has impacted the workforce. Many studies have shed light on a variety of topics, including equality, gender roles, effective evaluations, and more.
Non-traditional careers refer to jobs that are typically filled by one gender, and the US Department of Labor defines non-traditional jobs as occupations in which one gender comprises less than 25 percent of all people employed in that occupation. A man interested in pursuing nursing, for instance, is entering a non-traditional career.
