About

Why is diversity good for businesses? What can leaders do to make their organisations more inclusive? This Managing Diversity in Business - Creating and Leading Inclusive Organisations module from Queen Mary University of London will explore these and other questions by introducing students to a range of theories and practical issues relevant to managing diversity in contemporary organisations. 

Overview

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. 

Course aims

The aims of the Managing Diversity in Business - Creating and Leading Inclusive Organisations module from Queen Mary University of London are to introduce theoretical perspectives relating to equality and diversity in work and employment and understand how these can be applied in practice to help create and lead inclusive organisational workplaces. The module will examine the nature of informal and formal processes in the labour market and in organisations which generate and perpetuate various inequalities and influence the provision and effectiveness of equality and diversity policy initiatives. In addition, the module will explore the role of organisational leadership in creating diverse culture as well as the role of equality and diversity policies and practices in the achievement of organisational and business goals, aiming to quip students with skills to advise on the design and delivery of effective diversity initiatives in organisations.
