As Australian labour continues to become more diverse, increasing emphasis has been put on diversity-related issues in the workplace. This subject is designed to provide students with information on the multiple levels of diversity, and on how to manage diverse people and related issues to be effective in a global economy.
The subject will impart relevant scientific information as well as applied information (content) to furnish students with a foundation on how to effectively manage employee diversity in the workplace.
