Gender and Diversity Cluster

What we do

The cluster provides a supportive and inclusive environment to produce critical management research, develop teaching practice, and generate professional engagement activities, focusing on gender and diversity in the workplace. Its interdisciplinary membership includes researchers from the Department of Management, Leadership and Organisations (MLO), the Centre for Enterprise and Economic Development Research (CEEDR), Accounting & Finance, Psychology and Media.

Our research addresses four themes:

  • Gender equality
  • Workforce diversity including gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity, age, and religion
  • Work-life balance
  • Maternity protection at work in developed and developing countries.
