About this event

Celebrating EDI

The event is open to staff and students alike. Join us to discover more about Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at the Business School and the university-wide strategy. Eva and Robert, our keynote speakers, will share their work on the decolonisation of the curriculum and an inclusive reading guide.

A message from the Dean of the Business School:

"With the increase in globalization, greater workforce diversity and ever-changing demographic population shifts, the need to promote and embrace diversity in organizations has never been greater.

Leading organizations now see diversity and inclusion as a comprehensive strategy embedded in every aspect of the talent life cycle to enhance employee engagement, improve brand image and drive performance.

As such as a School we are keen to involve as many people as possible in our vision of EDI, leading to the opportunity to participate in this interesting event.

Christine Cross - Dean of the Business School"
