Postponed: Summer School on Behavioural Science of Diversity & Inclusion

This event has been postponed to 2021, we will update this page once further details have been confirmed.


The summer school will bring together leading academics, researchers, and organisational leaders specialising in evidence-based approaches to advancing diversity, inclusivity, and belonging in workplaces, business organisations, and learning environments.

Participants will learn about and engage in topics and issues relating to gender, race, ethnicity, disability etc. by looking at the extent of such inequalities in markets, organisations, and society in general; identifying the underlying sources and drivers of these disparities; as well as assessing the effectiveness of potential solutions and policy interventions. Topics covered at the summer school will include, but will not be limited to: (1) competition and workplace diversity; (2) hiring decisions and diversity in organisations; (3) diversity and inclusion in the classroom; (4) the extent and nature of discrimination in the workplace and society; (5) diversity in work groups and teams; (6) differences in economic and social preferences across demographic groups; and (7) effective policies and approaches to increasing diversity in organisations and other environments.
The Summer School is targeted at postgraduate and PhD students from the fields of economics, psychology, behavioural science, philosophy, organisational behaviour, management science, human resource management, social policy, as well as the general audience from the public and private sectors who are interested in learning new theories and evidence in the science of diversity and inclusion. The school will take place at University of Warwick, United Kingdom. The school will also be a platform for conversation among the lecturers and other participants with ample opportunities for discussions. For more information, please contact:
Places are limited to a capacity of 40.
