Global Diversity Challenges in the 21st Century Other events...
Effective management of diversity in society and workplaces continues to present challenges in the 21st century. Diversity management remains a fragmented research discipline and profession which suffers from crises of legitimacy and trust. Despite an Ďitís good for us: itís good for businessí mantra, diversity management still attracts resistance ranging from active backlash to passive indifference.

The lively interactive lecture will explore reasons for this resistance and highlight understandings of how diversity management contributes to an organisationís triple bottom line (people, profit and planet related performance outcomes). Drawing on his extensive research collaboration with a wide range of industries and organisations, Professor ÷zbilgin will outline how to develop evidence based arguments to achieve support from leadership and line management for diversity management initiatives; as well as provide models which can aid assessment of diversity management activities from multiple perspectives and interests including strategy, employee well-being and productivity, reputation, profit and competitiveness. The lecture will be interactive and audience members will be able to contribute to the discussion.
