Event details

For this event, there shall be a discussion about EMW engagement within multinational organisations in terms of their involvement with leadership and management programmes and related career development opportunities.

This research study intends to explore the effectiveness of gender and racial diversity and equality in leadership and management programmes within multinational organisations by studying the work perceptions and experiences of ethnic minority women (EMW). This research shall focus on the workplace experiences of South Asian women working in the UK within multinational organisations. It will illustrate the career development prospects available for EMW and their involvement in such opportunities. Previous research studies specify that many of the difficulties faced by these women in the workplace are due to being a minority in the residing nation and subsequent clashes of expectations, especially in their endeavours for leadership positions. Furthermore, current research reports that many organisations have a low representation of women in top management teams, and organisations will lose out on the best talents if women continue to be significantly underrepresented in talent pools from which senior management personnel are selected. This study will also investigate the management strategies required to help improve EMW representation within the organisation leadership.
