DIVERSITY MANAGEMENT IN SMES (PHD)

This research, which takes place in the frame of the Policy Research Centre on Equal Opportunities, aims to expose managerial diversity practices in Flemish small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Using qualitative case studies, we investigate how Flemish SMEs manage diversity in the specific societal and organizational context which they are embedded in. We also study the effects of these managerial diversity practices on the professional opportunities and the social inclusion of female employees from ethnic minority groups.
