Speaker(s): Professor Iris Bohnet
Chair: Professor Carola Frege

Recorded on 14 April 2016 at Old Theatre, Old Building

Gender equality is a moral and a business imperative. But unconscious bias holds us back, and de-biasing people’s minds has proven to be difficult and expensive. Diversity training programs have had limited success, and individual effort alone often invites backlash. Behavioral design offers a new solution. By de-biasing organisations instead of individuals, we can make smart changes that have big impacts. Presenting research-based solutions, Iris Bohnet hands us the tools we need to move the needle in classrooms and boardrooms, in hiring and promotion, benefiting businesses, governments, and the lives of millions.

This event marks the publication of Iris Bohnet's new book, What Works: Gender Equality by Design.

Iris Bohnet is a behavioral economist at Harvard University, where she is a professor, Director of the Women and Public Policy Program, and Co-Chair of the Behavioral Insights Group at the Kennedy School of Government.

Carola Frege is Professor of International Employment Relations and Chair of the LSE Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Taskforce.
