Why is diversity good for businesses? What can leaders do to make their organisations more inclusive?

Students will learn why inclusion matters, how diversity relates to business and organisational success, and explore case studies related to different dimensions of diversity like gender, age, race and so on. We will then discuss various theories that help us understand why diversity and inclusion issues continue to persist in organisations and the labour market. For instance, why are some professions continue to be male- or female dominated? Where does gender pay gap comes from? Can recruitment be unbiased? The module will then explore how to apply theory to practice and explore how to design and deliver effective diversity initiatives in organisations and consider the role of managers and leaders in fostering organisational inclusion.
