Inhoud vak

In organizations, a wide diversity of people have to work together. They
differ in terms of gender, race, professional specialization, sexuality,
age, nationality, education, membership of social networks, etc. These
differences are bound to affect the processes of organizing. Although
this diversity can make it difficult to understand each other and work
together smoothly, it also opens up possibilities for learning and
exploring new solutions. In this course we will focus on theories and
practices of dealing with diversity and inclusion in organizations.
Diversity issues are related to human behavior in organizations but also
to (international) strategic issues, consulting practices, and
leadership in organizations. Therefore, this course is tailored to
students of all five BA programs of HRM, IM, LCM, MC, and S&O.
