Vienna and The Institute for Gender and Diversity in Organizations

In 2014 the Conference on Diversity in Organizations, Communities and Nations will be held in Vienna, Austria at the Vienna University of Economics and Business home to the Institute for Gender and Diversity in Organizations. This highly innovative research facility was sanctioned as a means to draw increased attention on factors of human diversity in traditional social structures, focusing on gender roles, ethnicity, class, religion, age, education, sexual orientation and alternative ways of life. Expertly addressing these top issues on the international academic and professional agenda, Vienna University of Economics and Business is a one-of-a-kind institution and amongst the most forward-thinking European organizations making it a landmark venue for our 2014 meeting.
