    Michelle Hebl, Rice University

    Metcalf Research Building

    Friedman Family Fund Colloquium.  Speaker: Dr. Michelle “Mikki” Hebl, Rice University. Title: How Subtle Biases Can Profoundly Influence our Workplaces.    Introduction: In this talk, Dr. Hebl will provide an overview of her 20-year research career examining issues related to diversity and discrimination in the workplace. She will discuss the ways in which powerful people “gatekeep” or prevent others from reaching their full workplace potential. Her work specifically focuses on subtle (as opposed to more overt) forms of discrimination, and her talk will focus on many gender- and race-related research findings. She will close with suggestions for how we can individually and organizationally remediate biases and enhance our diversity-related efforts.
