Understanding the challenges and issues related to managing gender equality, diversity and inclusion in organisations, designing interventions and give content to the social responsibility of organisations.

Organisations today have to deal with an increasingly heterogeneous workforce, due to developments such as migration, emancipation, ageing, and international cooperation. The inclusion of men and women, older and younger colleagues, people from different ethnic backgrounds, religions, various educational backgrounds and different sexual orientations has become an issue for employees and managers in modern organisations. To attract and retain a diverse workforce, to realize equal opportunities for all, and to create an inclusive organisation in which people’s needs for uniqueness and belongingness are met, are key challenges for organisations. Valuing all talent and using everyone’s full potential has beneficial effects for individuals, organisations and society.

In the Master's specialisation in Gender Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in Management, we focus on the role and function of gender and diversity in the workplace, connecting what happens in organisations to the underlying power processes in politics and society. We study how organisations produce different structural inequalities (regarding gender, ethnicity, sexuality, class, age, disability), and how these inequalities influence each other in organisational practice. We explore the processes and practices of organisational change in this area. The programme addresses questions about strategy, culture and identity, leadership, and the inclusion of multiple stakeholders in organisational change. We offer state of the art theoretical insights, an overview of current management practices and provide a solid training in research methods to help you diagnose and solve policy problems, and design and implement organisational interventions.

It is advisable that students have done some courses or electives in the field of gender and diversity studies.
