 GT05_00 Gender, Race and Diversity in Organisations General Track

The aim of the GRDO General Track is to advance and disseminate new scholarship and debates, which address all forms of inequalities in the global political economy. In addition, it aims at addressing how policy measures may be devised to nurture the inclusion of marginalised voices and work towards the social justice and well-being of all individuals and communities. GRDO covers all knowledge and content relating to gender, race, and diversity within and outside organisational boundaries, including cultural, societal, political, and geographical levels, to illustrate the intersecting dynamics of differences on several scales.

GENDER, RACE AND DIVERSITY IN ORGANISATIONS SIG TRACKS

T05_02 - Disability equality, fact or fiction? Future directions for workplace integration.

Globally equality legislation has promoted the rights of persons with disabilities (PWD), however, these rights remain elusive in practice. PWD are the largest underutilised labour market group and face distinct disadvantage entering and inside the labour market. Where organisations promote equality and diversity through management practices, there remains a policy to practice implementation gap and weak legislative enforcement of rights. This stream will address the ableist environment which poses challenges to disability inclusion. It will consider key debates on legislative impact, workplace integration for PWD, policy implementation gaps and specific challenges and enablers in the workplace.

T05_03 - Diversity / identity / power: An intersectional approach to international and cross-cultural management

This track investigates how power, identity and diversity come together in contemporary international and cross-cultural management (ICCM). Our focus lies on how exaxtly power-effects impacts current ICCM, and on how some ICCM actors are (dis-)advantaged. We wish to widen traditional ICCM foci to include, e.g., migration and mobility, privilege and marginalization, and categories and discourses of difference and otherness, and we seek to develop methods and theories for doing so. To this end, we invite you to submit interdisciplinary and novel research at the intersections of ICCM and GRDO/workplace diversity. We are happy to discuss ideas in advance (contact proponent1).

T05_04 - Migrants' skills recognition and integration into the European Labour Market

Due to increased workforce mobility and migration, the European workforce is increasingly diverse. The current research focuses on macro barriers (e.g., legislation) that hinder the labour market integration of migrants especially from developing countries, which result in  precarious jobs for migrants with little or downward career mobility prospects, and underutilized skills and talents in labour markets. What is lacking is a comprehensive understanding of organizational practices of integration. We therefore welcome papers that explore the organizational understandings and practices of employers, migrant workers and their colleagues  that have implications for migrants’ recognition of skills and integration into the labour market.

T05_05 - Queer Perspectives: Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity and the Plurality of Self-Concepts in Organisations

We invite scholars to submit papers that address LGBTI and plurality issues from a variety of different perspectives. Possible research questions may address: a) Understanding more fully the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and/or intersex employees; b) Processes of (de)categorization in employees’ identity formation/management; c) Exploring the general plurality of self-concepts in terms of workplace diversity; d) Evaluations  of  diversity  management  activities  in  terms  of  various  individual  or organizational outcomes; e) Exploration of the intersection of multiple stigmatized identities of LGBTI people; f) Theoretical considerations on L,G,B,T, and/or I- related issues in organizations; g) Masculinities/Femininities.
