First announcement for the European conference EQUALITY, GROWTH AND SUSTAINABILITY – DO THEY MIX? 25-26 November 2010, Linköping University, Sweden

This conference is a forum for examining if and how questions of equality, growth and sustainability can be reconciled in organisations and implemented in general practice.

15 years after the Beijing Platform for Action this conference will provide academics, policy makers and practitioners with an international and interdisciplinary forum for exchange.

The purpose is to explore and disseminate knowledge and experiences on gender equality, gender mainstreaming, diversity management, growth and sustainability, inclusion and equal opportunities. The ambition is to discuss these key concepts and issues from an intersectional perspective, and in theory and practice, in order to rethink and find new ways to move on.

The conference will contain academic and doctoral sessions as well as sessions for practitioners and policy makers. We welcome proposals for workshops and paper sessions!
