The Consortium for Diversity at Work

In 2006, the UWA Business School established the Consortium for Diversity at Work  based on the philosophy that life and work is no longer predictable in our rapidly-changing, competitive economy.

The consortium conducts original, timely and relevant research on all aspects of diversity at work, with a focus on four core themes:

  • labour market and workforce diversity
  • work/life quality and diversity
  • leadership and diversity
  • governance and diversity.
