DEI @ Work Book Discussion | Laura Huang’s “Edge: Turning Adversity into Advantage”
March 23 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
“In an ideal world, we’d succeed based on our actual skills and performance. But in the real world, subtle perceptions and stereotypes – about appearance, race, gender, experience and more – color others’ perceptions. The result might be that your hard work isn’t noticed or appreciated, your effort doesn’t lead to proportional rewards and your good ideas aren’t taken seriously. But it doesn’t have to be that way. As Harvard Business School Professor Laura Huang has discovered, there’s a way to flip stereotypes and obstacles in your favor. Drawing on compelling case studies and her groundbreaking research on overcoming bias, Huang explains that by finding your edge, you can turn perceived disadvantages into real strengths – and into real success.” [Center for Positive Organizations] This virtual discussion is open to all — but please register to receive the Zoom link prior to the event.
