In the fourth lecture of the series, Professor Lucy Taksa addressed Social Value and Diversity. Over the past two decades Diversity Management has emerged as the accepted approach for valuing human differences in the workplace. A prominent feature of this approach is the construction of diversity as an asset that can be maximized for competitive business advantage.

The presentation considered the implications of this orientation for the value attached to cultural diversity by assessing whether Diversity Management and the rhetoric of productive diversity has changed the way migrant workers are viewed and represented.

This event was held on Wednesday 4th August 2010.
