Equality, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) in the workplace are known to increase organisational effectiveness, innovation and lead to greater employee wellbeing and satisfaction. But getting it to work remains a challenge for organizations, however, because there is still little consolidated knowledge about what works and what does not, and what can be done to put it into practice/ make it work. The aim of this seminar series is to engage academics, organisations, and the wider public to voice new ideas and spark social innovation to help organizations create inclusive environments where everyone, irrespective of their backgrounds can flourish and reach their full potential.

Funded by the ESRC, the event series is the result of a collaboration between Aston Business School ,Lancaster University , University of Sheffield and The Work Foundation.

This event, which is the second in the series, will:

•Investigate the role of organisational strategy, policies, climate, and culture in embedding equality, diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
If you are interested in attending this event please contact Rohini stating your name , job title/ position and organisation or place of study.

Early registration is therefore recommended to avoid disappointment.
