The Centre for People, Organisation & Work (CPOW) is an inter-disciplinary research centre.
Our research focuses on addressing economic inequality, gender inequality, and embracing diversity to advance positive social change. These analyses address the impact of economic, political, technological and social change on people and the communities, industries, and regions in which they work.
The Centre recognises that economic and social inequalities are defining features of the world we live in. Our communities, workplaces, governments, labour markets and public policy are rapidly changing. Through rigorous research and engagement, CPOW examines the impact of these changes on individuals, communities and broader populations. Our research is collaborative and speaks to policy-makers, employers, and civil society organisations at local, national and international levels.
