Inclusion and the exclusive setting of organizations: Irreconcilable or compatible?
On December 7th, 2016 from 15.00 to 16.30 pm, the CBS Public-Private Platform and it’s Diversity and Difference cluster have the pleasure of inviting you to a seminar with visiting researcher Laura Dobusch. Laura is a Research Associate at the Sociology of Diversity Chair at the Technical University of Munich, as well as a Postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Social Law and Social Policy and the ‘Dis[cover]ability and Indicators for Inclusion’ research group. The focus of her work is on organizational diversity (management) and questions of inclusion/exclusion with an emphasis on dis-/ability and gender.
At the seminar, Laura will introduce her current research project in which she is focusing on inclusion and the executive setting of organizations. Currently, she is trying to bring the ‘inclusion turn’, which is spreading in both diversity practice and research, together with organization theory. So far, organizational inclusion has been mostly approached in a very normative and generalizing way, which rarely takes into account that organizations are potentially very exclusive (e.g. hierarchy, formalization, specification) and context-dependent (e.g. occupation, task orientation) settings. Applying a relational lens of inclusion and exclusion, Laura is interested in re-assessing the exclusionary and inclusionary dimensions of organizational setups in terms of their structures, processes and practices.
Information and participation
Laura’s seminar will be followed by a light reception, therefore, please sign-up by e-mail to CBS Public-Private Platform. Participation is free of charge.
