Diversity in Organization, Communities & Nations


THE FIFTHTEENTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON DIVERSITY IN ORGANIZATIONS, COMMUNITIES, AND NATIONS

Hong Kong SAR, China
University of Hong Kong
15-17 July 2015

Dear Delegate,

Proposals for paper presentations, workshops, posters, or colloquia are invited for the Fifteenth International Conference on Diversity in Organizations, Communities, and Nations being held at the University of Hong Kong, in Hong Kong SAR, China from 15-17 July 2015. We welcome proposals from a variety of disciplines and perspectives that will contribute to the conference discourse. We also encourage faculty and research students to submit joint proposals for paper presentations or colloquia

The International Advisory Board is also pleased to announce the Call For Submissions to the peer-reviewed Diversity in Organizations, Communities, and Nations Collection of Journals. Proposals are invited that address issues of diversity through one of the following categories:

Theme 1: Identity and Belonging
Theme 2: Education and Learning in a World of Differences
Theme 3: Organizational Diversity
Theme 4: Community Diversity and Governance

In addition to the annual themes, the conference will address the special focus - Affirming Diversity for Social and Educational Justice - through keynote speakers, garden sessions, workshops, and parallel sessions that examine the following topic:

AFFIRMING DIVERSITY FOR SOCIAL AND EDUCATIONAL JUSTICE
Modern diasporic movements of populations both across and within countries impact upon social diversity at multiple levels of scale. Responses to social change due to difference, whether related to culture, language, gender, race/ethnicity, class, ability, or sexual orientation can be conservative and at times detrimentally reactionary in nature. This conference focus, whilst acknowledging the challenges of diversity to local communities, seeks to disrupt discourses and narratives that can be seen to enable or accept inequity, and examine the potential benefits of diversity to all members of society. This conference focus thus explores the various ways global issues impact upon local contexts. Questions addressed will include:

- How can changes to a country's demographic profile as a result of global population movements be viewed as adding value to a society's social and cultural resources?
- How can the inclusion of diverse learners enhance the learning of all across educational contexts?
- How can inclusive leadership for marginalized groups enhance organizational capacity-building?

Presenters may also choose to submit written papers for publication in the fully refereed Diversity Collection of Journals. If you are unable to attend the conference, you may still become a member of the community and submit your article for peer review and possible publication, upload an online presentation, and enjoy subscriber access to the journal. 

Proposals for in-person presentations should be submitted by 7 MAY 2015 (title and short abstract). Proposals submitted after this day will be accommodated in non-themed sessions at the conference or are eligible for community membership registrations (no attendance at conference required with community membership presentations).

Special Conference Focus: Affirming Diversity for Social and Educational Justice

Modern diasporic movements of populations both across and within countries impact upon social diversity at multiple levels of scale. Responses to social change due to difference, whether related to culture, language, gender, race/ethnicity, class, ability, or sexual orientation can be conservative and at times detrimentally reactionary in nature. This conference focus, whilst acknowledging the challenges of diversity to local communities, seeks to disrupt discourses and narratives that can be seen to enable or accept inequity, and examine the potential benefits of diversity to all members of society. This conference focus thus explores the various ways global issues impact upon local contexts. Questions addressed will include:
  • How can changes to a country's demographic profile as a result of global population movements be viewed as adding value to a society's social and cultural resources?
  • How can the inclusion of diverse learners enhance the learning of all across educational contexts?
  • How can inclusive leadership for marginalized groups enhance organizational capacity-building?
The 2015 meeting will feature a special focus on this thought-provoking subject. We welcome open debate, discourse and research from participants that center on this special topic, as well as any other themes or issues relevant to diversity.
