Studies show that diverse teams are better at solving problems and innovating. Research also shows that bias and stereotyping on teams can eliminate these benefits. WPI Professors, Lisa Stoddard and Geoff Pfeifer, have developed several tools and modules to help students and faculty identify, manage, and mitigate these issues. Their research shows these tools can improve equitable and effective teamwork by overcoming stereotypes, building confidence, and minimizing task assignment bias.
Join The Women of WPI for a Fireside Chat about justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion in the classroom and the workplace. Our panelists will share their insight, research, and solutions with actionable steps you can take today in support of this vital work.
Preceding our presentation on DEI initiatives, we welcome WPI Trustee, Pamela McCauley, Ph.D. who will be sharing her mission to empower women to successfully pursue STEM educational, entrepreneurial and career goals, and how this passion connected her with WPI. Dr. McCauley is an internationally recognized innovator, entrepreneur, engineering researcher, author and award-winning educator.
