dc.description.abstractThe U.S. Census Bureau has predicted the number of racial minorities to increase 19% by 2050 which makes workplace diversity a central challenge for businesses in the 21st century (Hostager & Meuse, 2008). While diversity awareness is generally perceived to be beneficial, recent studies have shown that an information overload can cause employees to be apathetic toward diversity (Kalev, Dobbin & Kelly, 2006). However, little is known about how diversity-related messages are received based on the perceived communication variables of the recipient. This study will examine diversity-related messages to determine possible links between these messages and the communication variables of apprehension and competence.en
