Defining who we are: how the psychology of identity shapes diversity at work

As a part of the Spring into STEM Lecture Series, UCL School of Management’s Felix Danbold will be hosting a session on; Defining who we are: how the psychology of identity shapes diversity in organisations, where he will explore why there can be resistance to diversity initiatives within organisations from dominant groups. 

Many organisations are now striving to increase diversity in their ranks, but progress is slow. This is caused, in part, by a hesitance among majority group members (e.g., some men in engineering) to embrace diversity efforts and a scepticism of members of underrepresented groups (e.g., women).

Recent research reveals how the psychology of identity helps us understand where this resistance comes from and uncovers new strategies to reduce it.
