What Works: Designing Inclusive Organizations

Date: 

Tuesday, September 27, 2016, 5:30pm to 7:00pm

Location: 

John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum, Harvard Kennedy School, 79 JFK Street, Cambridge, MA

Iris Bohnet, Professor of Public Policy, Director, Women and Public Policy Program, Co-Chair, Behavioral Insights Group, Harvard Kennedy School; moderated by Meghna Chakrabarti, Host of Radio Boston, WBUR

Diversity is a moral and a business imperative. But unconscious bias holds us back, and debiasing people’s minds has proven to be difficult and expensive. Behavioral design offers a new solution. Professor Iris Bohnet will discuss what organizations can do to create more inclusive environments, level the playing field, and help diverse teams succeed. There is so much more that can be done – often at a shockingly low cost and surprisingly high speed. Join the Harvard Kennedy School’s Women and Public Policy Program (WAPPP) during HUBweek for a conversation with Iris Bohnet, Professor of Public Policy, author of What Works: Gender Equality by Design, and director of the Women and Public Policy Program.

This event is part of HUBWeek at Harvard University.
