The challenges of working with diversity in social systems

The 23rd edition of the International Workshop on Teamworking (IWOT) was hosted by the Work and Organizational Psychology Research Center at Babeş-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca, Romania. The conference took place in Cluj-Napoca (Romania) between September 5th and 6th, 2019. After more than two decades in which the conference provided a forum for discussing multidisciplinary research on teams and teamworking, on this occasion the focus was on comparing and reflecting on “The challenges of working with diversity in social systems”.

IWOT has established itself as a multi-disciplinary arena for researchers of teamworking. The attendees are a mix of senior academics and junior researchers, but also of practitioners. The workshop is characterized by constructive feedback and an amicable atmosphere. To combine the useful with the pleasant, the social event combines sightseeing with dining so that participants can discuss their research interests informally.
