SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT FOR BUSINESS

BUA5VED

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject is designed to develop your ability to critically assess the role of the UN Sustainable Development Goals in contemporary organisations. It also provides you with an opportunity to reflect on your role as a leader in terms of diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Through the use of frameworks, concepts and real-world scenarios you will aim to build your capacity to develop sustainable practices for organisations and to include global ethical concepts in organisational decision-making. Workplace inclusion is examined with particular regard to the most pressing challenges in the Australian and global contexts, and informed by theories of human rights, just distribution, respect and equity. A selection of other relevant topics (e.g., conflict within teams, the future of work) will be introduced, shaped by current research, current events, and your interest.
