Demographic Dissimilarity, Information Access and Individual Performance Defended on Thursday, 21 December 2017

With growing nationality and gender diversity in organizations, the question under which circumstances differences in nationality and gender affect individual performance increases in importance.

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.
