For courses in Success/Orientation, Race and Ethnic Relations, Cultural Diversity in the Workplace (Business Management), Interpersonal Human Relations, Sociology, and Allied Health/Human Services; also for teacher-training education courses, and staff/professional development workshops.
This empowering study on human diversity helps students develop the ability to understand, respect, and value diversity—and demonstrates how opening one's mind to the views of other peoples and cultures is central for a quality education and successful career. Personalizing the learning experience by integrating a variety of real-life student experiences and perspectives, it discusses topics in a style that promotes self-reflection and dialogue that is inclusive and not condescending. Complete with self-reflective journal questions, case studies, and interactive exercises, it discusses diversity and workplace issues—such as teamwork, conflict management, leadership, racism, prejudice, and communication; and zeroes in on the relationship between an employee's success and his/her ability to develop flexible thinking to positively and effectively deal with a variety of diversity issues.

"Although well researched and emprically grounded, Diversity Consciousness is not targeted towards academicians; rather, it is student-oriented...Bucher's case studies, an addition from the first edition, are a pedagogical gold mine."--- Teaching Sociology, Matthew Oware, DePauw University
"A wealth of scenarios, exercises, and practical information in the book illustrates the importance of diversity in achieving equity, intercultural understanding and cooperative success." – Teaching Tolerance magazine
"Diversity Consciousness is clearly well researched. Rich Bucher has written it in a thoughtful manner so the reader can not only grasp the range and depth of a wide range of diversity concepts, but can also apply critical skills to address diversity issues we experience in everyday life." – Gary Izumo, educator and author
"College students must know and understand diversity in order to value it and to develop a diversity consciousness which allows them to negotiate their way through personal, college, and workplace communities. I believe students will respond well to this text book overall ...they will especially appreciate the students' voices represented in the text." – Kathleen C. York, Community College of Denver
"Richard Bucher's work makes a major contribution to a clearer understanding of how and why diversity is crucial to the basic prosperity and future survival of our country." – Franklin D. Raines, Chairman and CEO of Fannie Mae
“Diversity Consciousness is user friendly, that is, the students find it easy to read and yet it does not achieve this by “dumbing down” the content. Also, the organization of the book seems to help the student move through what can be a very difficult and troubling subject.”--John Rushing, Barry University
