Celebrating CRED’s 10th Anniversary
Speaker: Myrtle P Bell, Professor of Management, University of Texas at Arlington
Abstract: For some thirty years, researchers and practitioners have used the term “diversity”, “valuing diversity,” “managing diversity,” and later, “diversity and inclusion”. These ideas are ostensibly to bring those who have been traditionally excluded and devalued into employment and equality in organizations and society.
Research indicates that discrimination, inequality, and exclusion persist, sometimes in more insidious forms,
and in some cases, intensifying.
This lecture will discuss research in this area, crossing diversity boundaries such as race, sex, and sexual orientation, with a focus on using research evidence in teaching and educating for change.
This lecture will be followed by a reception.
