Dr Grace Lordan is the Founding Director of The Inclusion Initiative, and Associate Professor in Behavioural Science at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). Dr Lordan was previously the Director of the MSc in Behavioural Science in the Department of Psychological and Behavioural Science at LSE.
She is an economist by background, and her research is focused on understanding why some individuals succeed over others because of factors beyond their control. In this regard, she has expertise on the effects of unconscious bias, discrimination and technology changes. Grace is also interested in using the techniques of behavioural science to design interventions for firms to promote good conduct, diversity and inclusion and curb biases that creep into high stakes decision making. Grace has advised and given talks to large investment banks and international conferences on these topics. Grace has also led projects to advise commissioners in the UK and policy makers in the EC. At the LSE Grace trains executives in these approaches through her teaching on corporate behaviour and decision making.
