Conference theme:

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in 2018: Progresses, Setbacks or New Challenges?


        The EDI conference welcomes a wide range of streams about the complex relationship between equality, diversity and inclusion from different theoretical, empirical and methodological approaches as well as across various disciplinary, interdisciplinary, international and comparative perspectives.


        This year, as EDI conference enters a new decade, we welcome stream proposals that engage with all types of research questions. We wish to draw particular attention to the fact that despite all the research efforts as well as organizational and political initiatives aimed at promoting diversity, inequalities persist. Furthermore, while workplaces claim to pay more attention to diversity, new forms of discrimination and barriers, more complex and more subtle, make it more difficult to detect biases and prejudices. A particular invitation is therefore extended to streams that explore the advances, setbacks, drifts and transformations facing diversity, equality and inclusion. We invite streams that will examine the new challenges facing the promotion of all forms of diversity, as well as the analysis of experimentation with policies and practices that seek to address these objectives.


         The identification of these potential stream proposals should not be considered as restrictive. We welcome all themes that help to create spaces for the exchange of new ideas that contribute to building a critical analysis on diversity, equality and inclusion.


          The Montreal EDI conference will hold a doctoral colloquium and a special one-day workshop where practitioners are invited to share with researchers issues and experimentations in terms of diversity, equality and inclusion issues in the workplace. The 2018 edition also welcomes proposals for pre-conference workshops.
