Tessa Wright and Hazel Conley, members of SBM and the Centre for Research in Equality and Diversity (CRED) have recently published an important new edited collection, The Gower Handbook of Discrimination at Work. The book contains 22 chapters which examine both social justice and business case perspectives for equality and diversity. The contributors have considerable depth of understanding of workplace discrimination, both as academics and equality practitioners, their work has contributed to policy formation and all are committed to improving the lives of people at work. They offer insights into existing international developments and make suggestions for the ways in which positive change can be realised. The timing of the book also means that it is one of the first critical commentaries on the Equality Act 2010, the biggest change to UK equality legislation for 40 years.
