Scholars and practitioners have highlighted how diversity of identities, cultures and experiences within workforces can be of benefit to organisations. Yet, the meaning and design of inclusive organisations remains elusory.

Drawing upon her research and experiences working with organisations, Quinetta Roberson will offer a new lens through which to view diversity. She will challenge us to define, ideate and create environments that value differences and offer open systems of opportunity and access to all workers. 

Quinetta Roberson (@QuinettaPhD) is the Fred J. Springer Endowed Chair in Business Leadership at Villanova University, prior to which she was an Associate Professor at Cornell University. Dr. Roberson’s research, teaching, and consulting work focuses on developing organisational capability and enhancing performance through the strategic management of people – particularly diverse work teams.

Jacqueline Coyle-Shapiro is Professor of Organisational Behaviour at LSE’s Department of Management and the incoming President of the Academy of Management. 

The Department of Management (@LSEManagement) is a world class centre for education and research in business and management. At the heart of LSE’s academic community in central London, we are ranked #2 in the world for business and management studies.
