ODC@10 Organizing for Good:
"Designing Organizations for Diversity, Equality and Inclusion"
Thursday, March 10th, 2022 at 9:00 am Eastern Time
Many organizations in the public and private sectors have long been trying to reduce inequality and discrimination within their boundaries. This panel brings together leaders who have been working to build diverse, equitable, and inclusive organizations and scholars who have studied the effectiveness of organizational interventions in pursuit of these goals.
Erika Hall (Emory University) will facilitate a panel featuring Frank Dobbin (Harvard University) and Shweta Shukla (Netflix).
Erika Hall is Associate Professor of Organization & Management at Goizueta Business School, Emory University. Her research focuses on the influence of race, gender, and class-based biases on interactions within the workplace and the broader society. In 2016, she was honored as one of the “The World’s Best 40 Under 40 Business Professors” in Poets & Quants.
Frank Dobbin is Henry Ford II Professor of the Social Sciences at the Department of Sociology, Harvard University. His 2009 book Inventing Equal Opportunity showed how corporate personnel managers defined what it meant to discriminate. Since then, he has been developing an evidence-based approach to diversity management, studying the effects of interventions such as mentoring programs, diversity taskforces, special recruitment programs, and diversity training. This work will be summarized in a new book co-authored with Alexandra Kalev, titled Getting to Diversity: What Works and What Doesn’t, coming out in Fall of 2022.
Shweta Shukla is an experienced HR practitioner who helps organisations build long term value through their culture and people practices. In her most recent corporate experience she headed HR for Netflix in Asia Pacific and was part of the early stage management team in the region. Prior to this at Facebook she led HR for several countries in APAC and helped build the foundation of the company in the Asia Pacific region. At both these companies she was part of teams that were experiencing hyper growth and grew across important markets in East and Southeast Asia. In the previous decade of her career she worked at organisations like GE, HSBC and Hewitt Associates which gave her the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of Talent and solve problems at scale.
