Leading effectively in today's workplace requires the ability to manage many types of diversity, including cultural, gender, and generational diversity. A key challenge to leaders is the tendency for societal stereotypes to bias one's evaluations and expectations. The psychology of stereotyping, and of strategies for minimizing its influence, is thus highly relevant to managers and organizations.
Research in social psychology, and social cognitive neuroscience, provides insights about how and when stereotypes affect judgments.
In this research conference, we explore these scientific insights and draw out some of their practical implications for managing diversity and inclusive leadership.
