Description

We invite you to join us in “Women in Technology: Attracting, Retaining and Promoting Diverse Talent” to explore strategies for advancing diversity in the technology sector, critically analyze the culture that has supported a foundation of inequality therein, and engage in multidisciplinary dialogue about the value of creating more space for women and other under-represented groups in technology.

Speaker: Dr. Danielle Gaucher

Associate Professor of Psychology, University of Winnipeg

Danielle Gaucher (PhD, University of Waterloo) is an Associate Professor of Psychology and Director of the Intergroup Relations and Social Justice Laboratory at the University of Winnipeg, MB, Canada. She studies how social inequality is maintained at individual and institutional levels with the goal of providing insight into social change, redress, and the re-engagement of member of vulnerable groups into the system.

Dr. Gaucher’s programmes of research investigate how, and why, social inequality is maintained, examining processes at both individual and institutional levels. Most of Dr. Gaucher’s research draws upon and extends social psychological theories of legitimacy, in particular system justification theory (SJT).

There will be a networking reception following the lecture.
