An international conference examining new questions for diverse societies
Lakeside Conference Centre, Aston University. 11am to 5.00 pm followed by a drinks reception
In times of crisis, financial, ecological or social, the question of diversity can be regarded as a distraction. Are we really so different? And if so, are those differences more important than what we share? Can diversity help us to imagine more creative solutions to the challenges that we face?
This conference brings together thinkers from Sociology, Linguistics, Business and Management Studies and Policy Studies to consider the challenges that face all of us and what thinking about diversity can add to our understanding.
Plenary speakers include:
Michael Keith (director of COMPAS, Oxford University),
Rob Berkeley (director of the Runnymede Trust),
Mairtin Mac An Ghaill,
Asif Afridi (deputy director of BRAP)
Regina Eckert (Centre of Creative Leadership)
Session themes include:
- language, region and identity
- who are you calling ‘poor’? Urban identities and entitlement
- gender and leadership talk
- developing inter-cultural strategies in organisations
- cultural industries and diverse communities
