IPMU Colloquium

Speaker: Joyce Yen (the University of Washington)
Title: Effective Evaluation Practices: Evidence for research on bias and its consequences
Date: Wed, Jul 22, 2020, 09:00 - 10:30
Place: Zoom Colloquium
Abstract: While many individuals and organizations in science and engineering state they support diversity, equity, and inclusion, every day practices may prevent such statements from becoming a reality. In this talk we examine one area where individuals and organizations can actively become more inclusive and effectively advance diversity goals: hiring. After defining diversity to provide a framework for this talk, we will review evidence from research on bias and its consequences, examine effective evaluation practices, and demonstrate how diversity, equity and inclusion is a leadership issue that requires actions, rather than statements, of commitment.
