The objective of this study is to assess the attitudes to diversity of white men employed in public and private sector organizations in terms of the degree to which they contrast or converge. This assessment will be based on scores attained on the Attitudes Towards Diversity Scale (ATDS). Further more the degrees of difference and association of ATDS scores between white men employed in the public and private sector of the British employment market were statistically tested. The reason for making a comparison between public and private sector organizations is the general perception cited by Constantine-Simms (2000) that service driven public sector organizations are perceived as having a more favourable attitude towards anti-discrimination policies than profit orientated private sector organizations that claim to be equal opportunity employers. By using the ATDS tool this study wanted to establish if the organizational setting [public and private sector] in which the white male sample group were employed impacted on their attitudes towards diversity and organizational justice.
