The Worker Institute at Cornell University's ILR School

The Worker Institute at Cornell's ILR School is a broad forum for research and education on contemporary labor issues. The Institute applies innovative thinking and a problem-solving approach to the workplace, economy and society, bringing together in collaborative projects researchers, educators, students and practitioners in labor, business, and policymaking. 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 models.
