Embracing Differences podcast - lee clarke


Professor Lee Clarke is based at the Rutgers University in New Jersey and he is the author of various books specializing in disaster and emergency management from a very sociological perspective. Lee reminds us that organisations are designed for a purpose and consistently rationalised to ensure that efficiency is maximised in pursuit of profitability.
