15th Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Conference
22-24 July 2022
Cape Town, South Africa
Stream Title: Religious Disruption and Discrimination in the Workplace: Examples, Implications and Outcomes Across Countries
This stream is consistent with the 2022 EDI conference theme of "Disruption", an action through which "an event, system, or process is prevented from continuing or operating in a normal way" (Collin's dictionary). We invite papers aimed at surfacing different forms of religious disruption and discrimination's impact in the workplace, employment and management practices. Religious discrimination is often a result of lack of tolerance and understanding based on negative stereotypes. Relatively little research has been conducted on the impact of religious disruption and discrimination in the workplace. Given the challenges faced by individuals striving to follow their religion in the workplace, the proposed stream invites papers that explore the presence, implications and outcomes of religious disruption and discrimination in the workplace within different countries. Comparative papers are also welcome.
Keywords: Religion, Disruption, Discrimination, Workplace, Careers.
