WAPPP Spring 2023 Seminar Series: Behavioral Science for Inclusive Organizations
Led by Iris Bohnet, Albert Pratt Professor of Business and Government and WAPPP co-director, in conjunction with Bohnet's course MLD-310, our Spring 2023 Seminar Series will argue that behavioral design (“nudges”) offer a middle ground to establish healthy behaviors and is often more powerful than awareness-raising and less costly than shoves.

Featuring practitioners across sectors—entrepreneurs who have built evidence-based DEI tools; Human Resources (HR) and DEI leaders; as well as policymakers and -shapers—the seminar will explore how organizations can promote desired behaviors around effective talent management, create organizational policies and practices that level the playing field for all, and build an inclusive culture in the workplace.
