Institutionalized inequality and discrimination

Gender, race/ethnicity, class and other differences intersect in organizations as they also do in society. The aim of this thematic field is to tackle these intersecting processes and to analyze the efforts to build organizations that are more egalitarian and resist discrimination. With a focus on organizational inequalities, this thematic field will pay special attention to power dynamics in hierarchical settings and foster discussions on how organizations and hierarchies work, how hiring and human resources processes influence promotions, and how they might challenge inequalities and create more inclusive work environments.
