Organisations do not merely reflect society, they play a key part in creating it!

A key part of creating inclusive societies are the actions and attitudes of those who work for corporations. When considering Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex + (LGBTI+) inclusions and exclusions, how people relate to each other and their clients matters in the creation of everyday work lives and the experiences of these institutions.

In this talk, Kath will outline some of the key ways in which ‘inclusive practices’ are created, how they can fail to be inclusive and how they can be resisted and questioned.

This will draw on research undertaken in the UK and Ireland, and will be followed by a Q&A.

The event will be held over Zoom. Please ensure you have access to Zoom in advance of the event taking place. Zoom is available on all PCs, laptops, tablets and Apple or Android devices. The link to join the event will be emailed to registered members on the day of the event.

Kath Brown

Geography Professor at UCD

Kath Browne is a Geography Professor at University College Dublin. Her research has focused on social justice and inequalities, specifically around gender and sexualities.

She has worked with those marginalised because of their sexual and gender identities, exploring how lives can be ameliorated in ways that take place seriously.

She has also worked on those who are opposed to sexual and gender equalities, with Catherine Nash and Andrew Gorman-Murray, developing the concept of heteroactivism.

She currently leads the Beyond Opposition research, an ERC consolidator project that seeks to investigate the experiences of people who do not support some or all of the changes to sexual and gender equalities in the 21st century and explore new ways of engaging difference, differently
