PhD Project

Demographic Dissimilarity, Information Access and Individual Performance

With growing nationality and gender diversity in organizations, the question under which circumstances differences in nationality and gender affect individual performance increases in importance. Previous research showed that dissimilarity may negatively affect individual performance. We take this analysis an important step further by suggesting number of moderators namely: status difference between nationality minorities, public observability, specific status and nationality diversity. We determine access to distributed information as a mediator in this effect.
