ERSC seminar series: Drivers of the agenda on equality, diversity and inclusion at work
Wednesday, 17 December 2014
10:00 - 15:00
Aston University, Birmingham
Equality, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) in the workplace are known to increase organisational effectiveness, innovation and lead to greater employee wellbeing and satisfaction. But getting it to work remains a challenge for organizations, however, because there is still little consolidated knowledge about what works and what does not, and what can be done to put it into practice/ make it work. The aim of this seminar series is to engage academics, organisations, and the wider public to voice new ideas and spark social innovation to help organizations create inclusive environments where everyone, irrespective of their backgrounds can flourish and reach their full potential.
Funded by the ESRC, the event series is the result of a collaboration between Aston Business School ,Lancaster University , University of Sheffield and The Work Foundation.
This event, which is the first in the series, will:
Take stock and critically reflect about the legal,moral, and business case for EDI
- Explore the motivations that might drive the key actors in this field
- Discuss implications for embedding EDI in the workplace
