Abstract

The Leader-Member Exchange (LMX) process has been linked to the effective development of leaders, as well as outcomes for individuals and organizations such as performance and turnover. The basis for LMX is the working relationship, yet the LMX literature does not address the potential role that gender and race relations may play in the LMX development process. In this paper, current perspectives on diversity are integrated with LMX theory to extend the framework for the investigation of social psychological processes in diverse leader-member dyads. Implications for this framework of future research on LMX are discussed.
