Effective Evaluation Practices: Evidence from research on bias and its consequences

While many individuals and organizations in science and engineering state they support diversity, equity, and inclusion, every day practices may prevent such statements from becoming a reality. In this talk we examine one area where individuals and organizations can actively become more inclusive and effectively advance diversity goals: hiring and evaluation. After defining diversity to provide a framework for this talk, we will review evidence from research on bias and its consequences, examine effective evaluation practices, and demonstrate how diversity, equity and inclusion is a leadership issue that requires actions, rather than statements, of commitment.
