Foenander lecture series
The lecture is open to the public and provides an opportunity for the academic and business community to discuss contemporary issues of joint interest.
The Foenander Lecture was established in memory of Orwell D. Foenander, a former academic at the University, who was one of the leading figures in industrial relations scholarship in the early 20th century. Each year we invite a distinguished figure from government, business, the union movement or academia to present a lecture on contemporary issues in industrial relations and human resource management to an audience of practitioners and academics. This is a once in a lifetime honour - speakers cannot be invited to deliver more than one Orwell Foenander lecture.
The lecture is open to the public and provides an opportunity for the academic and business community to discuss contemporary issues of joint interest. The lecture is usually scheduled in the early evening and held in one of the lecture theatres on campus.
