In this introductory article for the special issue of Journal of Management Studies, entitled ‘Diversity perspective in management: Towards more complex conceptualizations of diversity in management studies’, we highlight thematic research avenues that emerged out of the set of studies accepted for publication. Recognizing that even a set of articles as diverse as those in this special issue cannot realistically represent all new research directions in a field, we identify developing areas in diversity research and call out additional avenues for research. We hope our commentary inspires scholars to unveil new understandings of how diversity affects our organizational and work lives and can contribute to making the world a better place.
