Conference theme 2024: Gender Equality across the Gender Spectrum


The EDI Conference seeks to provide an international, inter- and transdisciplinary platform for the exchange of ideas in the field of equality, diversity and inclusion in the world of work. The conference welcomes participation by academics, policy makers, and practitioners. The conference welcomes contributions that cover all aspects of diversity, however, in 2024, we draw particular attention to the concept of gender equality across the gender spectrum.


Despite the fact that ensuring fairness and prosperity for all people is a European Commission priority, there is much work to be done with respect to equality across genders and gender identities. For example, only 18% of senior executives in Europe are women (European Commission, 2022). Gender nonconforming people face even greater obstacles, with more than 75% reporting having experienced some form of workplace discrimination (National Center for Transgender Equality, 2023). In light of the fact that Spain has recently passed progressive legislation aimed at expanding the definition of sexual harassment and assault and at protecting the rights of transgender employees, Seville, Spain is the ideal setting to highlight gender and gender identity as our conference theme.


We invite academic streams and workshops which make empirical, theoretical or methodological contributions, to be presented in academic streams, as well as experiences of policy makers and practitioners, which can be presented in workshops or round table discussions

Streams are envisaged as following a traditional academic format, whereas workshops are open to more unconventional and informal procedures.


Stream chairs and workshop chairs will receive a reduced conference fee. Each stream or workshop may have up to three chairs.


There will be a doctoral colloquium parallel to the conference. Information on deadlines and modes of submission are available on the EDI website.
