International diversity management: issues, experiences and implications?
An invitation to contribute to an international seminar on 9th January 2018 in London


The event
The seminar will offer opportunities to discuss how organisations from a range of sectors manage
their international diversity strategies; the issues and concerns they confront; their experiences and
the impact achieve. The seminar goal is to seek to develop a best practice model that can be applied
to strengthen and improve diversity management within international organisations.
Presentations are invited from international organisations where equality, diversity and inclusion
(EDI) is, or aims to be, a core part of their organisational culture and from academic researchers who
have worked in this area. One of the aims of the seminar is to capture the experiences of those
attending and with this develop an edited book where the practical concerns of multinational
companies can be explored and insight offered to other organisations.

We welcome presentations and papers from practitioners and academics which discuss, illustrate
and inform the development and implementation of diversity across international settings.
The seminar will be participative and will be addressed by leading experts and leaders on the topic;
there will be the chance to hear of recent research from the British Council and Middlesex University
as well as submitted contributions. It will be hosted at Middlesex University in North London.

To submit a paper for the seminar please send a title and 150 word abstract to Alex Elwick
( by 15 October.

Further details about registration for the seminar will be circulated soon; there will be a £60 cost per
head to cover refreshments and lunch.
