You will conduct research on how low-skilled labour (LSL) organizations deal with diversity in their workforce in terms of gender, ethnicity and class. Using the concept of inclusion and intersectionality, you will empirically document the organizational practices that increase the inclusion of a diverse workforce – with special regard to migrant workers – in LSL organizations.
The PhD project is part of a larger research programme that contributes to our knowledge on gender and diversity in organizations. In this research programme, several projects on diversity are conducted to study the way inequalities are reproduced and countered in organizational processes.
As a PhD candidate, you will contribute to the NWO-funded VIDI project ’Caring for diversity: meeting care needs of migrant and LGBT elderly in changing care landscapes’. You should be interested in using a qualitative research approach with an explicit action research component, and be eager to develop your knowledge of social theory.
The starting point for this project is the decentralisation of elderly care to the local level. The aim is to understand the scope for developing care practices that are responsive to the care needs and ageing experiences of migrant and LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) elderly in cities and neighbourhoods.
