Abstract

I developed a theory of diversity advantage to explain the intermediate outcome of diversity management. Adopting the resource based view and institutional theory, I examined how diversity advantage, consisting of capital and process advantages, will be associated with three types of diversity management structures: strategic, institutional and configurational diversity structures. Specifically, I suggest that strategic diversity structures will lead to capital and process advantages, whereas institutional diversity structures will only lead to capital advantage. The configurational diversity structures will also lead to both capital and process advantages, but the effects will be stronger than those of the sum of the other two types of structures.
