A conference about applying psychology to ethnicity and diversity practice in organisations is being held in London later this week.

“Ethnicity at Work: The Value of Psychology” will take place at the Holiday Inn, Bloomsbury, on Friday 23 September 2011. It is organised by the Ethnic Diversity at Work Group, part of the Society’s Division of Occupational Psychology.
