Handbook of Research Methods in Diversity Management, Equality and Inclusion at Work

Edited by Lize A.E. Booysen, Regine Bendl and Judith K. Pringle

Equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) have become features of organizations as a result of both legal and societal advances, as well as neoliberal economic reasoning and considerations. Current research approaches frequently fall short of addressing the challenges faced in EDI research, and this benchmark Handbook brings up to date coverage of research methods in EDI, and advances the development of research in the field.

Chapter 10: Indigenous research: ontologies, axiologies, epistemologiesand methodologies

Ella Henry and Dennis Foley


This chapter examines two similar yet culturally differing Indigenous views. It discusses Indigenous research from a New Zealand M_ori and an Australian Aboriginal standpoint. We explore our personal and professional views on Indigenous ontology, axiology, epistemology and methodology, and the methods that inform and are shaped by these worldviews and philosophies. In doing so, we critically reflect on the application and significance of Indigenous research, particularly within the fields of business studies, to share Indigenous knowledge and thinking, and allow an Indigenous perspective on diversity, equality and inclusion. Our views offer a conceptual and reflective insight into our personal experiences and concerns as members of the small but growing group of Indigenous scholars in business.
