People often feel they are being judged differently for doing the same things. But experiences based on gender identity or ethnicity are frequently dismissed. This LSE Public Lecture presents key findings of a timely Marie Curie Project conducted at LSE.
Identical leadership films featuring different protagonists and cutting-edge interview methodologies involving first-person videos provided deep insights into how people perceive others and how they judge others on personality scales. These new findings illuminate the pathways to the emergence of implicit biases and their manifestation in standardised surveys, which are widely used in organisations and research.
This research is funded by a Marie Curie Fellowship awarded to Dr Jana Uher by the European Commission (no 629430).
