Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace

‘ESRC Seminar Series: Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion in the Workplace’.  

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.

We look forward to welcoming you on Wednesday 17th December 2014 to “Drivers of the agenda on EDI at work“.
