Managing diversity: Bringing together theory, evidence and practice

When: Thursday, June 9, 2022, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Where: Zoom

Organisations are claiming to be taking managing diversity more seriously and, at the same time, are collecting (and reporting on) growing quantities of data about their workers, but the connection between the two trends remains unclear. Does ‘datafication’ help or hinder managing diversity? And what is the role of theory in a world of ‘big data’ and ‘HR metrics’? How can we better bring together theory, evidence, and practice to make a meaningful difference?

A webinar from Queen Mary’s Centre for Research in Equality and Diversity (CRED)

Expert panel including:  

  • Professor Rob Briner, Professor of Organizational Psychology at QMUL 
  • Professor Emmanuel Ogbonna, Professor of Management and Organization at Cardiff Business School, Cardiff University 
  • Professor Ahu Tatli, Professor of International Human Resource Management at QMUL
  • Professor Mark Williams, Professor of Human Resource Management at QMUL

Join us for a thought-provoking conversation that will explore: 

  • What does ‘managing diversity’ mean in 2022 and what should it mean? 
  • How can evidence inform managing diversity? 
  • Are mandatory reporting initiatives box ticking exercises, or do they hold promise? 
  • What are the limits of the managing diversity approach for racial and ethnic minorities? 
  • What is the current state of EDI theory and how can it be improved?
