Explore the recent articles and past themes of AIB Review.

The theme of the fifth issue is… The diversity challenge

Definitions of diversity typically refer to “a range of people with various racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, and cultural backgrounds and various lifestyles, experiences, and interests, and representations of age, race, gender, socioeconomic status, religion, and political perspectives.”

Diversity is often aspired to, and less often achieved. Questions that might be considered include: Does diversity matter? Does positive discrimination make a difference? What are the obstacles and points of resistance and how can they be countered? Do targets or quotas work?? What difference does a diverse profile make to business and governance? Is it just a slogan?
