The School of Law, Trinity College Dublin, and the Centre for Social Innovation, Trinity Business School, welcomes you to a book talk on THE CORPORATE DIVERSITY JIGSAW by Dr Akshaya Kamalnath.
This event will take place in the KPMG Lecture Room, 3rd Floor, Trinity Business School, on December 12th at 11 am.
Although diversity in companies is a topic of great interest, significant aspects of the issue are often left out of the debate. The Corporate Diversity Jigsaw connects the dots so that steps taken to address issues of diversity in business organisations can be more effective. This book offers a justification of exactly what types of diversity are most useful for corporations, where they should be implemented, and how best to address diversity in ways that account for recent social movements such as #MeToo and Black Lives Matter.
After a critical assessment of quotas and disclosure requirements across jurisdictions, the book provides a different way to solve the problem, by encouraging companies to make improvements to their culture and internal processes. This book offers practical solutions and fresh perspectives on how corporate culture and social movements impact diversity efforts.
