Equality, diversity and inclusion in the workplace seminar series

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 organisations, 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 organisations create inclusive environments where everyone, irrespective of their backgrounds, can flourish and reach their full potential.

Funded by ESRC, the event series is the result of a collaboration between Aston Business School, Lancaster University, University of Sheffield, and The Work Foundation.
