Master’s Thesis Rewards
Keynote Speech: “Diversity Management - why does it matter?”
Professor Andri Georgiadou,
Lecturer in Human Resource Management,
Hertfordshire Business School,
University of Hertfordshire (UK)
Doctorate Thesis: “The Perceptions of Employees of Diversity Management: A Case Study in a Private Organisation in Cyprus”.
Research interests: Equality and diversity in employment; cultural diversity; international human resource management
“My research focuses on equality, diversity and inclusion at work from comparative, relational and interdisciplinary perspectives. Exploring aspects of equality, diversity and inclusion at work, I pursue a mainly curiosity driven, yet theoretically rigorous, empirically grounded and policy relevant, research agenda. My research seeks to answer important questions and address significant problems that face workplaces.”
Panel discussion: ”How to benefit from diversity in work organisations?”
Moderated by Senior lecturer Marjatta Huhta, who has developed international degree programs and worked in international contexts.
These inspiring contributors are waking us up with their rich perspectives – AND you as a listener and contributor in the informal chats after the panel discussion proper! Food and drink to follow!
