This work integrated learning subject critically examines the role of diversity and inclusion in contemporary organisations. Demographic changes in the workforce, as well as a shifting social landscape, have been drivers to reconsider the ways in which management decisions affect both employees and customers. Students critically evaluate the theories and practice of diversity management with case studies in dis/ability, gender, sexuality and race. Legal and ethical aspects are investigated and practice-oriented learning experiences in the field including a micro-placement with a diversity organisation equip students with the necessary tools to respond to the disabling effects of discrimination and unconscious bias, to enable inclusion.
