The construction of difference and how differences between people are mobilised are key challenges facing leaders today. This subject explores theories of difference and diversity from the business perspective as well as critical and philosophical perspectives. Students will examine the challenges, drivers and strategic issues leaders face when working interculturally and globally. Issues of structural, cognitive and behavioural diversity will be explored through theory and case studies. The subject compares and contrasts interdisciplinary leadership concepts, perspectives, and theories to help students apply conceptual material to practical organisational challenges arising when wanting to work together effectively and respectfully across lines of difference.
