CONFERENCE THEME

In order to remain viable and vibrant in the current times work organisations need to morph into open system of opportunities to embrace and envelop diversity at every possible level as a means to an end. This conference endeavours to raise some pertinent questions such as

  • How do we see and construct an inclusive organisation in the context of structural- functional perspective?
  • How do societal and organisational forces impact/felicitate organisational inclusiveness?
  • How inclusiveness is important beyond the perceived purview of traditional work organisations such as learning organisations?
  • What are the immediate global trends that may impose compositional change and challenges on organisations? and
  • What accountability and governance issues we need to consider in an inclusive organisation?

The conference has proposed to have following tracks and sub-themes though not limited to inclusiveness perse in work organisations.
