The Equity at Work initiative
examines how the workplace is impacted by the evolving and changing norms of
the social construction of gender roles, identity, and expression.This includes discussion of current and
evolving workers' rights, the workplace contexts in which they currently exist,
and individual, organizational and cultural interventions that promote and
expand employment issues of respect, fairness, equity and justice.
We seek to promote productive
approaches to issues of diversity and equity which are fundamental to worker
rights and instrumental for effective collective representation.
Lending itself to a broad-based
multidisciplinary framework within the ILR School, across Cornell University
and with stakeholders, the initiative contributes to effective workplace equity
