This paper reviews the current research and theory on group diversity and group processes. It is argued that whereas the diversity management literature largely advocates an organization wide approach to diversity, researchers and practitioners should instead approach diversity from a group process contingency approach. A model of diversity, group processes, and moderator variables is presented. Finally, implications for diversity management and for future research are discussed.
