In 2021, we asked the question…

Is it possible to design diversity, equality and inclusion into an organisation or system, and if so, how?

Glory and Junho, our outstanding interns from The University of Liverpool are now leading the next phase of our enquiry to explore how we make it happen, to move us from talking into doing.

If you would like to be part of the enquiry, please get in touch and as a thank you.

“Hi, my name is Glory! I am a Master’s student at the University of Liverpool studying Occupational and Organisational Psychology.

During my course, I have learnt about the inequalities that currently exist in our society, and I have been interested in how to ensure equality, diversity and inclusion for all protected characteristics. Everyone deserves a right to work, a right to promotion, among others.

Through my recent research on diversity and inclusion, it has been evident that inequality is still a forefront issue, and recent movements such as #MeToo, #StopAsianHate and #BlackLivesMatter have culminated in these. Working on this enquiry would help make real change and progress in organisations, as the focus is no longer on the ‘why’ but on ‘how’, particularly, ‘how can organisations build diversity and inclusion within their workforce?’. From this, we hope that we can discover evidence that can benefit business operations and functions.

I look forward to hearing from and working alongside the wider community to help create real change at work for everyone, as it should be.

“Hello, my name is Junho! I am a third-year student at University of Liverpool studying Business Economics. Studying economics gave me an insight into how globalised the world is becoming and the necessity of integration amongst people from all kinds of backgrounds. As an international student myself, this made me build up a huge interest in the field of Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion.

Due to the great interest in the field, I started engaging with the issue by researching about how the corporates are designing DE&I and I am interacting with lots of students from diverse backgrounds to enhance my understanding about the issue.

With my belief that there are a lot of things that can be done about DE&I, this 10-week internship is an exiting opportunity to discover diverse perspectives about how corporates look at and aim to design diversity and inclusion in their system.

Throughout the process of thorough research and communicating with diverse business leaders, we hope to discover “How” to design and deliver DE&I in business effectively to make a better change for the society. I look forward to working with the wide community of OD and all the business leaders that have a great interest in the field!”
