“Diversity initiatives that receive strong, reliable support from top management continually out-perform

efforts that lack such support (Gilbert and Ivancevich 2000). In providing support for gender diversity, top

managers model the attitudes and behaviors needed to ensure the initiative’s success[i]”.
