Masters in Organisational Inclusivity
The Masters in Organisational Inclusivity is a 180-credit, two-year, part-time programme delivered through blended learning. It consists of four pathways and six modules all of which are assessed and compulsory for the Masters award.
A brief overview of each pathway and its associated module content is provided below:
Pathway 1: Identity
This pathway consists of two core modules:
Organisational Identity, Culture & Ethics
Social Constructivism, Identity & Belonging
The overall learning outcome from this pathway is to provide delegates with a critical understanding of individual and organisational identity. It explores concepts like Individual, Intertwined, Intersectional and Global Identities and seeks to engage delegates in critical learning on how identities are formed, shaped and influenced. Fundamentally, learning from this module is positioned against the concept of organisational Diversity & Inclusion so delegates can better understand how individual actions and notions of equality, equity & justice can shape distinct personal and corporate identities. The broad principles discussed in this pathway will also be related the protected characteristics as per the Equalities Act (2010).

Pathway 2: Race, Faith & Gender.
This pathway consists of three core modules:

Faith, Belief & Religion in a Secular Modern Society
The overall learning outcome from this pathway is to engage delegates in a critical understanding of Race, Faith & Gender in contemporary society. The modules in this pathway position the current social context against a broad historical understanding of Race, Faith & Gender. They engage delegates in critical discussions on subject areas like Race & Racism, Whiteness in Society, White Power, Secular Modernity, Organisational Secularism, Gendered Roles, Gender (in)Equality and Toxic Masculinity. Learning from these modules is positioned against the concept of Organisational Diversity & Inclusion as well as learning from the Identity pathway.
