Let’s Talk: Gender bias in the hiring and recruiting process
June 12, 2018; 6.30–8 PM
Ashdown, Hulsizer room.
Join Prof. Katharina Ribbeck and GW@MIT for a dinner and discussion regarding gender bias in the hiring and recruiting process! Participants will be given 3-4 articles to read beforehand. The discussion will cover themes from bias in industry and academia hiring, how to spot such unconscious biases, and what can be done to overcome these. We also have a ‘What-If’ session where we will discuss how to deal with situations when one may feel biased against. All members of the MIT community are welcome to join!
