Abstract

The purpose of this article is to show how a community of persons can shed light on managing diversity, particularly with respect to integrating an immigrant workforce into organizations. Methodologically, we use a pragmatic constructivist epistemology that enables us to build generic knowledge. Combining three types of information (interviews, autopraxeogra-phy, and secondary data) makes it possible to demonstrate that person management practices that foster openness to others—through tutoring, coaching, mentoring, " companionship, " and activities linked to social committees for immigrants—enables organizations to obtain an inclusive environment. Additionally, immigrant involvement encourages intercultural sharing. It is easier to integrate immigrants into an organization when employers acknowledge that an immigrant is a person, an individuality, a " me " as well as an " us " because they share ideas and common goals that belong to the community (i.e., the organization). In this way, a community of persons becomes a community of shared ideas, values , and interests. Knowledge—such as know-how, soft skills, and the ability to change—is strengthened.
