Can management practices enact and embody equality, empowerment, and justice? Can they generate greater equality in and around organizations? This course believes explicit conversations on social justice contribute to more attentive management practices, and to a better world. Classic and contemporary theories of class, race, gender and sexual identity offer foundations for such critical approaches to management, concerned with questions of justice. We consider colonial, white settler, and industrial influences on management theory, and moving past these influences in two ways: through management concepts that remind us of consensual, ethical and voluntarist bases of managerial action; and experiential narratives of non-hierarchical, reflective, and inclusive management practices.
