    Organisations are claiming to be taking managing diversity more seriously and, at the same time, are collecting (and reporting on) growing quantities of data about their workers, but the connection between the two trends remains unclear. Does 'datafication' help or hinder managing diversity? And what is the role of theory in a world of 'big data' and 'HR metrics'? How can we better bring together theory, evidence, and practice to make a meaningful difference? 

      

    Join our expert panel for a thought-provoking conversation that will explore: 

     

    • What does 'managing diversity' mean in 2022 and what should it mean? 
    • How can evidence inform managing diversity? 
    • Are mandatory reporting initiatives box ticking exercises, or do they hold promise? 
    • What are the limits of the managing diversity approach for racial and ethnic minorities? 
    • What is the current state of EDI theory and how can it be improved?
