This article outlines the results of qualitative research on Diversity Management carried out with Brazil's 20 largest companies. The objective of the study was to map the perception of employees and managers on Diversity in the context of the organizations, confronting the corporate discourse with the perspective of professionals who identify with this theme. Therefore, we interviewed, using qualitative techniques, managers of 12 out of 20 national companies and 45 employees, representing all selected companies. The results show a very incipient management in Brazilian companies, with a discourse that is little aligned to the practice and almost no practical demonstration of results, perceived by employees with mistrust and a sense of exclusion.
