Content

The unit aims to provide students with an ecological framework with which to explore values and practices that promote diverse and inclusive workplaces. Students will be provided with information on models of best practice with particular emphasis placed on two groups traditionally marginalised from employment: older workers and those who have a disability.

Topics to be addressed in this unit include: demographic trends and implications for employment, diversity and organisations of choice, strategies for promoting organisational diversity, the concept of work ability and its importance for an ageing workforce, strategies for promoting work ability, equal opportunity, discrimination, multidimensional approach to assessment, transition to employment, job-match, job and work analysis and strategies that promote employer confidence with employees who have a disability.
