“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.
