A cornerstone of Alliance Manchester Business School is our world-class research and our latest magazine showcases just a few of our many highlights from 2017. We also discuss the events at the School and their take on important boardroom issues.
Of particular note is the work of Professor Jill Rubery, Director of our recently launched Work and Equalities Institute and Fellow of the British Academy, who talks about the ground-breaking Human Development Report which has highlights inequalities across Greater Manchester.
Also in this issue we take a look at a wide range of research topics such as: the future of the UK textile industry; efforts to further embed diversity at work; a standard for responding to emergencies and disasters; and issues around take-up of shared parental leave. Our new Director of Research, Professor Ken McPhail, also talks candidly about the emerging research area of business and human rights, and the essential role that business schools can play.
