Human Rights & Human Diversity with Human Resources Management

What is Human Resources?

Human resources is a key sector where the concerns of human rights and human diversity meet the practical reality of workplaces, whether in the public, private or non-profit sector. Hiring, promotions, and workplace conditions have serious and immediate implications for whether individuals of diverse backgrounds and identities enjoy the equality and opportunities that human rights principles suggest everyone deserves.

Why HRHD and Human Resource Management?

Human Rights & Human Diversity addresses two key aspects of today's workplaces: workplaces are highly regulated by human rights codes and labour regulation and the workforces that populate them are diverse and likely to become more so in the future. Having a deeper understanding of these powerful trends should be advantageous to you in your career.

Human rights concern human dignity. A secure and good paying job can enable people to experience lives of dignity. Human resources managers exercise influence over who gets those jobs. If we're going to have a real equality of opportunity, we need human resources managers who care about human rights.
