The article observes that diversity management (DM) is central to the HRM function in work organizations, and the past decade has seen employers seeking to establish more devolved management structures that place more emphasis on local-level managerial decision-making.

An important component of this shift in many organizations has been the reconfiguration of the role of fist-line managerial leader (FLML) to encompass a wider range of HRM responsibilities. Hence, diversity management and leadership in this regard are a key HRM role for leaders and managers.
