Joint seminar organized by the IRB Barcelona and IBEC Equality and Diversity CommitteeClaartje Vinkenburg, VU University Amsterdam
Claartje Vinkenburg, PhD, is associate professor of organizational behaviour and independent expert consultant. Dr Vinkenburg’s research activities, partly funded by the European Research Council, deal with gender and ethnic diversity in professional and academic careers as well as with sustainability in combining career and care.
This 2-hour seminar aims to explore and explain the concept, causes and consequences of implicit or unconscious bias and how it affects careers, workplace culture, and work-family reconciliation in research organizations. In addition, ways to effectively promote diversity and inclusion in research by learning how to mitigate bias in the scientific career progression will be addressed.
