"Why Bias Interventions (Need Not) Fail"

Please join us for the final Social Prosem of the semester on Friday, December 9, at 11:45 am (in person in 547 Fraser or via Zoom).

Dr. Toni Schmader, from the University of British Columbia, will be here in person. Her talk is titled: "Why Bias Interventions (Need Not) Fail."

"There is considerable debate about the efficacy of diversity training initiatives, with concerns that they are not only ineffective in creating more inclusive workplaces but can in some instances even backfire," Dr. Schmader writes. "In this talk, I’ll provide an overview of our lab’s recent efforts to understand that ways in which implicit bias presents a barrier to women’s sense of inclusion in male-dominated STEM fields, and how allyship from male colleagues can counteract these effects. I will also share preliminary data from a unique randomized control trial testing the efficacy of a theory-based implicit bias training program aimed at changing beliefs and behaviors to foster greater inclusion for women in science and engineering. Findings from a mix of experimental, survey, and field-based studies point to the importance of inclusive relationships for women’s job commitment, but our efforts to motivate allyship behavior is ongoing."

If you are unable to attend in person, please join us via Zoom - https://kansas.zoom.us/j/93046079360 Passcode: 079250.
