Managing Diversity in the Workplace
Diversity can be a source of richness in an organisation which can lead to shared experiences and improved productivity in the workplace. However, what do we mean by diversity? How can different facets of it be harnessed effectively? And, most importantly, how can Business Psychologists contribute most effectively to using the concept of diversity to improve relations in the workplace and organisational effectiveness?
This session will address specific aspects of diversity from different yet complementary angles.
* Managing Neurodiversity in the Workplace
* Managing conflict at work
* Managing Diversity in Assessment
By attending this event you will also receive a free copy of Business Psychology in Action, published in 2015, whose authors include these speakers, and we’ll also be offering the opportunity to get your copy signed by the speakers after the session.
