Inhoud
As the labour force becomes increasingly diverse, a strong emphasis is being placed on diversity-related issues of all kinds in the workplace. People differ in terms of gender, ethnicity, race, national origin, age, religion, cognitive and physical abilities, professional specialization, sexuality, age, nationality, education, membership of social networks, etc. A diverse staff can lead to more innovation and creativity but also cause problems like miscommunication and social conflicts between organisational members. Organizations need to address diversity issues in some manner if they are to compete effectively in a global economy. By using a combination of insights and concepts from organization studies, gender & diversity studies, sociology and anthropology, research master students will gain insight in how organizations (re)produce inequalities. We explore how social inequality in terms of gender, ethnicity, age, sexuality, dis-/ability is (re)produced in organizations. The course will offer several analytical frameworks to map complex processes that underlie the reproduction of inequalities in organizations. The course also offers an advanced understanding of the role of qualitative epistemologies and methodologies that are used in studies on diversity.
