Chapter 9: Diversity orientation and disability in organizational leadership

Mark E. Moore and Lana L. Huberty


The purpose of this chapter is to examine the impact of organizational leadership and how it affects diversity orientation and the managing of diversity relative to individuals with disabilities. To critically examine this topic, the authors conceptualize the theoretical model of disability diversity orientation. Specifically, they posit that top management support, environment perspectives and organizational culture provide the underpinning for the orientation theory. A prominent theorem of the conceptualization is that diversity orientation is linked to the managing of disability diversity in work organizations. Finally, this chapter concludes with recommendations based on best practices for integrating individuals with disabilities into the workforce.
