A Conference Uniting Scholars and Practitioners from Across Continents

We are excited to announce the 2024 WU Gender and Diversity Conference on the topic “Embodiment: Exploring the Multidimensionality of the Body in Societies and Organizations," a groundbreaking event that aims to foster interdisciplinary discussions and showcase cutting-edge research and practical experience on the intricate interplay between the body and diverse facets of human experience. The conference will be a platform for scholars, researchers, practitioners, and activists to delve into the multifaceted nature of the body, examining its role in various organizational contexts and situations, such as professional opportunities, work-related injuries or accidents, pregnancy, and childbirth, ageing at work, the intersections of gender with ability, aesthetic capital, physical and mental health, among others.

Conference detailed focus areas: The body is more than just a physical entity; it encompasses a realm of experiences, emotions, and challenges.
