Subject outline

In this subject you will develop your ability to critically assess the role of values, ethics and diversity in contemporary organisations. You will also be provided with an opportunity to reflect on your role as a leader in terms of values, ethics and the diversity in society. Through the use of ethical theories and real-world scenarios, you will develop your abilities to re-frame organisational practices in their ethical context and to include ethical considerations in organisational decision-making. The concept of workplace inclusion is introduced and evaluated with particular regard to the most pressing demographic issues in the Australian and global contexts, and informed by theories of human rights, just distribution, respect and equality. 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 interests.
