How individuals, allies, and organizations can disrupt subtle biases in STEM, hosted by Empowering Women in Science

More than ever before, people work together with others from different gender, racial, sexual orientation, age, religion, parental status, and ability backgrounds. The challenges that emerge when people from different backgrounds interact can be understood from the perspective of social identity theory. In simple terms, we like people from our own group more than people from other groups. This can lead to dysfunctional behavior such as incivility, biased decision-making, and ineffective group processes. However, these processes can be disrupted and enable positive interpersonal dynamics. Join EWIS in welcoming Dr. Eden King. She will share her expertise on the social sciences at the CFI, and provide recommendations for leveraging diversity. See attached flyer.
