‘Decent Work’ is part of a United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal and psychological construct associated with ‘good’ employment conditions (e.g. stability, security, fair pay, social protection, equality of opportunity and treatment for all). Despite a 30-year history, minority ethnic students and graduates remain some of the most excluded from employment. This session draws from a major study in Vietnam which positions Appreciative Inquiry as a form of engaged scholarship where minority ethnic groups collaborated with influential policy-makers, employers, and university seniors, to re-vision Decent Work and the pathways towards it. The session provides an experiential experiment which invites participants to imagine the application of the approach in their own context and reflect on the implications of the extant power structures and differentials in their own sociocultural settings. The frameworks and strategies for inclusion that emerged in Vietnam are shared as prompts to inspire dialogue around inclusive relationalities in engaged scholarship.
