Diversity management is examined as an emerging employment and/or consulting role of possible interest to sociological practitioners. First, the general development of diversity management since the mid-1980s is traced. Demographic imperatives for diversity management as well as some definitions, emphases, procedures, and publications are identified. Second, the linkages between diversity management and sociology/sociologists are discussed, as to: (a) substantive connections, (b) special sociological insights, (c) training suggestions, and (d) corporate involvement issues.
