The second event in this series acknowledging and promoting outstanding research by ANU College of Law academics.

About this event

The ANU College of Law Research Showcase Series seeks to acknowledge and promote outstanding research by College academics. This instalment in the series features Dr Akshaya Kamalnath, who will speak about her upcoming book The Corporate Diversity Jigsaw, which will be published by Cambridge University Press in 2022.

Although diversity in companies is a topic of great interest, the book argues that significant aspects of the issue are all too often left out of the debate. The Corporate Diversity Jigsaw connects all the dots so that steps taken to address issues of diversity in business organisations can be more effective.

The event will be chaired by Professor Pauline Ridge.
