‘Management of Equity and Diversity’

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

COVID-19 has brought acutely to wide attention a range of inequalities in working life, including the gendered household division of labour. However, it has also offered opportunities for more inclusive working practices such as home working. The support for a diverse workforce can be considered ‘diversity management’ which attempts to harness the benefits of diversity for organisational gain. Through a discussion of the intersectional experiences of often marginalised employees, this chapter explores the discriminations reported by many employees. We focus specifically on disability, presenting historical and contemporary explanations of disability at work, with illustrative examples. The chapter concludes with suggestions for more inclusive practices at work to benefit both employees and employers.
